Landlords and tenants weighed in Wednesday evening on proposed rent hikes slated for October as the Rent Guidelines Board hosted its third public hearing at Brooklyn Borough Hall.
The board is proposing increases of 0 to 3 percent for one-year lease renewals.
They're also considering .5 to 4.5 percent hikes for two-year renewals.
Rent-stabilized tenants said they're looking for a rent freeze, while landlords expressed concern.
"I feel landlords have had steady improvement in terms of their profitability, and tenants, however, have been pinched by stagnant wages and tremendously increasing rents," said one person who attended the hearing.
"The deck seems to be stacked against the owners because the mayor campaigned on a rent freeze without any real facts, but just looking for votes," said another person who attended the hearing.
The fourth and final meeting will be in Queens on Thursday.
The final vote will be next Monday.
