TRINIDAD- Trinidad City Council will review a draft ordinance that regulates the city's vacation rentals and their tenants on Wednesday. The ordinance is designed to create regulations that will insure guests do not disrupt the community.

The city has been working on the ordinance for years and have been working with the Coastal Commission staff on the most recent draft. The draft requires rental homes to have a minimum number of occupants, limit noise levels, and establish a local contact person in case of emergencies.

The council will review the ordinance before they send it back to the coastal commission for final approval.
