OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Ocean Springs aldermen have decided to stop issuing permits for short-term rentals under the new city law until they can agree on how opposition from neighbors can be resolved.

The 13 homes issued permits since July will be allowed to continue renting.

Short-term rentals are homes whose owners rent them out by the day or week. More than a dozen homeowners already were doing that before the city hammered out an ordinance in 2015 to govern them and collect sales tax.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1pkcDXb) Cindy Britton’s house had met Planning Commission and city requirements for short-term rental and was going before the aldermen in an appeal hearing Tuesday when a neighbor presented a petition with more than 20 names opposing the business.
