Once the committee develops its proposed legislation, Smith said he then wants the city’s Ordinance Review Committee to discuss it over two consecutive months to further hash it out before it goes to Hamilton City Council, where it would be discussed during public hearings before a vote.

Mayor Pat Moeller said that means “there is no date set for the next public hearing or for any kind of version of any legislation,” because the committee process will take as long as necessary.
Smith has not yet announced most members of the new committee because he is waiting to receive confirmation from those who have been invited, but has said those represented will include a spectrum of the variety of apartment owners who operate in the city.
Smith said he hopes to hold the committee’s first meeting later this month.
