Board to county renters: Pay up
Westchester residents who renew their leases will soon have to shell out more for rent.
The Westchester Rent Guidelines Board voted on the increases Wednesday night. Tenants who sign a 1-year lease are facing a 2.25 percent increase or $20, whichever is higher. Tenants who renew for two years are facing a 4 percent increase or $40, whichever is higher.
The hikes go into effect in October.
