Hero Wisconsin landlord lowers rent to $100 amid coronavirus outbreak

A heroic Wisconsin landlord is helping his neighbors and tenants in these tough times. This week, John Zutz left a letter on his tenants’ doorsteps, alerting them that for the month of April 2020, their rent would only be $100, Nypost reported.

The letter read: “To my tenants, I’ve been watching how people are reacting to this virus thing. It appears the whole country is shutting down. Not exactly grinding to a halt but contracting significantly for the next two weeks, maybe more. It occurred to me my tenants might be affected — missing work or even becoming infected, putting you in a financial bind.

“I’m living on a fixed income (doesn’t go up much, but doesn’t go down, either). My mortgage is paid and my bills are covered, so I’ve decided to help with the neighborhood’s recovery. For the Month of April, 2020, your rent will be $100.

“If you are struggling financially this will give you some relief. If, however, you have the means, I suggest you use this windfall to buy food or services in Riverwest. Get a carryout meal from one of our great restaurants (and leave a nice tip). Spend a few bucks at the hardware store. Get some groceries, if you can.
