The Wilmington (N.C.) City Council last week formally amended the ordinance governing the city's short-term rentals -- rules that some embraced and others opposed when they went into effect three years ago. The council vote was effectively a "rubber stamp" that brought the city's short-term rental regulations into compliance with a ruling from a state appeals court this past spring. The court ruled the short-term rental ordinance violates North Carolina statute by requiring owners to register with the city to rent their properties. Wilmington opted not to appeal the decision to the state's Supreme Court.
