Nassau board approves first-ever rent freeze
The Nassau County Rent Guidelines Board approved a first-ever rent freeze tonight for one-year leases.
However, the board also voted to increase two-year leases by .5 percent.
Some Nassau lawmakers called on the board to freeze rents because of the current economic situation.
The move will impact the 9,500 rent-stabilized apartments in the county in areas like Hempstead, The Five Towns, Long Beach and Great Neck.
