The city of Tybee Island, Ga., is facing a second lawsuit from Tybee Alliance, a coalition of property managers and owners who have accused the local government of overreach in their short-term rental (STR) regulations. The Alliance filed its second complaint against the city in late November, about two months after the first lawsuit was filed. The second suit claims that the city did not follow local and states rules when adopting the latest amendments to their STR ordinance during an October council meeting. In the complaint, the Alliance states the city did not provide the ordinance in its final form during its second reading and that council made oral revisions. The first suit stated that aspects of the STR ordinance are unenforceable because the law violates state codes limiting municipal powers on enforcement.
