Take Action to Stop Evictions in Dallas
Dallas City Council Members Bazaldua, West, Medrano, Arnold, and Blackmon have proposed an ordinance to prevent evictions. This measure is important because, while Dallas County Justices of the Peace have halted eviction hearings, landlords are still able to file evictions and deliver a "Notice to Vacate" to tenants. The Emergency ordinance prevents this by requiring landlords to give a tenant a notice of proposed eviction prior to giving an impacted tenant a notice to vacate, which gives the tenant at least 60 days to respond, including curing any delinquent payments, before an eviction is filed.
Mayor Eric Johnson chose not to prioritize this urgent ordinance and place it before the full Council, but instead sent it to be considered at an unspecified time in the Ad-Hoc Committee on COVID-19 Human and Social Recovery and Assistance under the leadership of Councilmember Adam McGough. Despite the committee meeting on April 2, it still has not been considered.
