BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder is considering what to do about short term online rental units that have been spreading around the city.

Rentals of less than 30 days are currently mostly illegal in the city. City councilors are meeting for a study session Tuesday to discuss whether to step up enforcement against the rentals offered through sites like VRBO and Airbnb or to legalize and regulate them.

The Daily Camera (https://bit.ly/1uzRWIK ) reports the meeting comes a week after 20 people offering short-term rentals were sent letters ordering them to stop after someone complained. However, the city quickly rescinded the letters to allow councilors to discuss the issue.

According to the city, there were 31 Boulder properties offered through VRBO in 2008. In December, there were over 500 confirmed in the city limits.
