    City Council adopts, mayor signs amended short-term rental ordinance
    By Seth Daniel Special to the Gazette The City Council voted on June 13 to adopt Mayor Martin Walsh's amended short-term rental ordinance by a vote of 11-2, eliminating the controversial investor units that have been described as "de facto hotels," but also giving some new leeway to owner-occupants to rent out their units for short-term platforms. "We have eliminated the investor units that are putting pressure on our housing market, and we're also allowing this industry to operate and grow," said Councilor Michael Flaherty, who chaired the committee that looked at the new effort.
