Following years of debate and several studies, the New Orleans City Council was set to vote on a framework for regulating short-term rentals advertised through platforms like Airbnb. The vote was scheduled for Oct. 6. Today, the City Council announced it's moving the matter to Oct. 20.What a fun thing to have as a central focus of the campaign during the next round of municipal elections.
But if the Council misses its Oct. 20 deadline, that could table the issue for good, at least until the next administration steps in.

October 20 or bust?
So they went ahead and moved the short term rental vote just as they hinted they might.
