Statement from Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings | October 28, 2022

Mayor Demings' Seal“The Orange County Attorney has advised me that on October 27 the Fifth District Court of Appeals ruled that the November 8th referendum on the proposed Orange County Rent Stabilization Ordinance should have been enjoined by the Circuit Court and not placed on the November ballot. The Court confirmed that the law in Florida sets an extremely high bar for local governments wishing to pass a rent control measure. Orange County will be filing a motion for re-hearing. Due to pending litigation, no other official comments will be made at this time.”

– Jerry L. Demings, Orange County Mayor
