“While residents have raised concerns over traffic, noise and “bad behavior” tied to the rentals, the crowd was split on whether or not to implement rules to be enforced by the city.”

Coverage at WAVY.com about Short Term Rental public hearing at City Council last night.

The city council did not take any action.

A vote is scheduled for later this month, however a bill making its way through the General Assembly is aimed at rolling back regulations to give renters more freedom. House Bill 824, if approved, would supersede any local ordinances. On Tuesday, the House rejected the bill and the Senate requested the bill go back to a committee.

City Council is currently scheduled to vote at their March 20th meeting.
