More short-term backlash

Kelowna city council will face more backlash to proposed changes to its short-term rental bylaws when those changes are put to public scrutiny Tuesday night.

Council has already given the first two readings to a bylaw that will allow short-term rentals in secondary suites and carriage houses.

Council is expected to vote on that bylaw following the public hearing Tuesday.

City clerk Stephen Fleming says his office has received 13 pieces of correspondence pertaining to the amendments.

Fleming says nine of those are in opposition while four are in favour.

It's unclear whether those in opposition are against adding secondary suites and carriage houses to the short-term rental pool, or restrictions that allow only one short-term rental per property.

Council asked for amendments to the short-term rental bylaw after overwhelming opposition to the original bylaw that excluded both secondary suites and carriage houses.
