MERCED, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Merced City Council has voted to repeal an ordinance designed to protect renters.
Monday night the council voted four-to-three to begin repealing the Just Cause for Eviction ordinance.
Council members Noah Lor, Mary Rawling and Bill Blake wanted to keep the ordinance intact.
The vote will permit the eviction of tenants who are in compliance with their leases when the title to the rental property transfers as a result of a foreclosure.
