He <br />explained that he had been active in the community for many years. He purchased a home in 2017 <br />and used it as an Air BnB until they moved in a year later. They owned some long-term rentals and <br />also a movie studio house. He was concerned that they were taking an extreme measure in <br />regulating short-term rentals. <br />Vendella de Moors said she had lived in Peachtree City for 16 years and owned rental property. She <br />had run an Air BnB in the past and screened her guests, as well as followed Air BnB's process. Her <br />neighbors knew about it and had no problems. Now the City was talking about regulating these <br />types of rentals. They needed to focus on the people or businesses that owned the homes that were <br />causing problems. <br />Garret Merkley said, as a business owner, he had learned to examine issues to see if they were really <br />problems. In the case of these short-term rentals, they had the same issues as long-term rentals. He <br />did not feel the City should pursue this ordinance. They needed to help citizens earn money and use <br />their property as they saw fit. <br />Suzanne Brown reminded everyone that the primary election was May 24. The last day to change <br />anything on voter registration was April 25. Early voting started May 2, and the Peachtree City Library <br />was one of four sites in the County. She urged everyone to check the Secretary of State's website to <br />learn about changes in legislative districts. <br />Agenda Changes <br />None <br />Minutes <br />1.
