Short-Term Rentals

The Lexington city council is considering additional regulations for short-term housing rentals.  A draft ordinance got a going over Tuesday by members of the Planning and Public Safety Committee.

Committee members heard from several Airbnb participants.  Most like Kathy Burke said regulation is okay as long as it’s not more strenuous than other similar rental services.

“I will tell you that I would rather live in my Airbnb than my own house because there’s no clutter, it’s clean, my lawn is cut.  My neighbors love us,” said Burke.
