WATCH: Public weighs in on Tenants’ Bill of Rights, Flock expansion at 12/6 Council

Lexington, Ky.–Members of the public weighed in on the Tenants’ Bill of Rights and the Flock license plate reader project expansion at the Dec 6, 2022 Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council Meeting.

Some landlords spoke against the Tenants’ Bill of Rights, saying it would drive up rents and hurt landlords; some tenants spoke in favor of the Tenants’ Bill of Rights, including members of KY Tenants, who held a rally before the meeting.

Some people spoke against the Flock expansion, saying the resolution was pushed through too quickly without supporting data, may violate privacy, and may promote over-policing in communities of color. A few said that they supported the Flock expansion because it has helped recover over $1M in property and put more people in jail.
