The New Orleans City Council will wait until after Mardi Gras to discuss new rules governing short-term rentals, according to a statement released by the office of council president JP Morrell. The council will hold its next public meeting on the new regulations in early March. It must pass a new short-term rental law before March 31, a deadline imposed by a federal court. The U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decided in August 2022 that a key provision in the city’s existing law violated the U.S. Constitution. Morrell’s office said it will release a draft of a new short-term rental ordinance ahead of the meeting on March 2.
