BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The Burlington City Council Tuesday approved a measure to tighten rules on short-term rentals.

The ordinance passed on an 8-4 vote. Under the rules, those looking to rent out their property would be limited to rooms in their homes or their entire home if they’re away. They can’t rent out a separate unit for a short-term stay.

The goal is to get owners to rent out those spaces for long-term renters. But opponents of the plan say renting apartments to vacationers is not the cause of Burlington’s housing problems.
