After a nine-month study, the Chicago rent control committee has recommended that proposal for rent controls be rejected and that a rent complaint bureau be established in the city.department of human services. Mayor Bilandic said the recommendations were contained in a report submitted to him by the-committee, headed by Harry F. Chaddick, president of the First American Realty company. The seven-member committee was formed May 26, 1976, by then Mayor Daley · to determine whether rent controls are needed, or desirable. The committee found that the "deleterious effects" of rent control would: 1. Discourage construction of new rental units. 2. Discourage the maintenance and repair of of existing apartment buildings. 3. Increase tax delinquencies and building abandonment. 4. Cause reduction of real estate tax revenues. 5.- Discourage" investor confidence. ~, , v , *' 6. Create a new and very complex, very expensive bureaucracy to'enforce any rent control ordinance. 7. Contribute to neighborhood deterioration. The committee reported to Bilandic after a series of five public hearings in which, scores of witnesses were heard. · "There does not appear to be even a mild'demand for a traditional rent control program by toe people who appeared before the committee," the report said. "Over 100 community organizations were invited to participate through letters, telephone calls and personal contacts. Less than 20 percent participated. and not one submitted m forceful proposal for rent control per se." The committee recmn- mended that "there be established within the department of human services, an office devoted to complaints of tenants and/or landlords for the purpose of advising and reconciling differences relating to good housing in the communities, and the economics related thereto. "The powers of this office," the committee said, "should be administrative." The committee was "most emphatic" in recom- mending an expanded program of federally-sponsored rent subsidies to ensure that senior citizen, handicapped or disabled persons, as well as others on fixed or limited incomes, pay no more than 25 per cent of their income for rent. Other members of the committee are Miles Berger, head of a real estate appraisal firm; Marilow Hedlund, former 48th ward ^alderman and member of the, city zoning board of appeals: ifade and industrial workers who acquired their skills on the job can earn college credit for their knowledge through testing.
