Despite a handful of protesters outside its meeting, the West Hollywood City Council last night affirmed an ordinance approved in February that would ban short-term rentals of apartments in the city.  According to WEHOville, the online news site covering West Hollywood:

“…an overwhelming majority of the speakers inside the Council Chambers pressed the City Council to take a second and final vote to approve an ordinance that bans short-term rentals of apartments.

The Council voted three to two in favor of the ban. The ordinance makes it legal only for home owners and condo owners to rent out a portion of their homes for travelers or tourists. Even then, the owners must be at the home at least four hours a day, and condo owners must have the approval of their homeowners association.”

As previously reported, the City of Los Angeles has been debating the same issue for quite some time, but has not yet taken any final action on the issue. Currently there is no further discussion scheduled by the LA City Council.
