Short-Term Rental Enforcement Ordinance by Councilmembers Brossett and Palmer Passed by Governmental Affairs Committee

NEW ORLEANS - During today's meeting, the Special Governmental Affairs Committee passed Ordinance 33,351 authored by Councilmembers Jared Brossett and Kristin Gisleson Palmer to create a fund to enforce short-term rental legislation. The ordinance will now go to the full Council for a vote during its regular meeting on Thursday, October 7.

 

“We owe it to our constituents to enforce the short-term rental laws that have been on the books for the last two years,” said District “D” Councilmember Jared C. Brossett. “We passed targeted legislation in 2019 to strengthen the permitting, monitoring, and enforcement process for short-term rentals, but the longer we go without enforcement, the more we disrupt local neighborhoods and drive people out of their own homes. We are already experiencing an affordable housing crisis, and the rise of short-term rentals has only exacerbated that. It’s time we put the needs of our residents and our neighborhoods first.”
