CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) - Coralville officials are considering an ordinance that would block home-sharing companies such as Airbnb from operating in the Johnson County city.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports (https://bit.ly/2bnfSvI ) that some residents have complained to city officials about noise, parking and party problems at the rented properties. City Administrator Kelly Hayworth says the ordinance would target all shared short-term rental companies but wouldn’t affect bed-and-breakfast establishments, hotels or motels.

Hayworth estimated that there are about 60 Coralville homes being shared on a short-time basis now.

The City Council is expected to vote on the proposal later this month. It could go into effect by September if approved.
