Rents can be jacked up as much as 3% on one-year leases and 6% on two-year leases starting Oct. 1, according to new city guidelines adopted after a raucous meeting Tuesday.

“It’s not unexpected – it’s what they do every year. It’s a farce,” said Manhattan tenant Jeannette Burns, 64, of the vote to allow rent hikes.
