As the city deals with skyrocketing rents, the Seattle City Council voted to create what is believed to be the nation's first renters' commission. How would the commission - designed to give renters (approximately half of Seattle residents) a stronger voice at City Hall - operate? Could Seattle impose a city income tax and, if so, what would it cost residents? What are the new methods for cleaning up unauthorized homeless encampments? Councilmembers Rob Johnson and Kshama Sawant join host Brian Callanan to discuss these issues and more on the March episode of City Inside/Out: Council Edition.
