Delano residents and activists spoke at length at a City Council meeting Monday night, asking leaders to once again consider a local rent control measure.

DELANO 鈥 Despite pleas from local residents, the Delano City Council decided Monday night against imposing rent control and agreed instead to investigate the cost of implementing such a measure.

The council voted unanimously for a so-called fee study, with Mayor Joe Alindajao absent and Councilman Mario Nunes Jr. excusing himself. Both council members are landlords.
