TALLULAH FALLS— The town of Tallulah Falls voted to place an immediate moratorium on short-term rentals after they added to their agenda at their regular city council meeting on Thursday, August 8.
The vote was for an immediate moratorium on the issuance of building business licenses on short-term rentals in r1, single family, mf (multi-family), Planned Unit Developments (PUDs) and agriculture districts, said Linda Lapeyrouse, Tallulah Falls city clerk, in a phone interview Monday.
A moratorium is a temporary prohibition of an activity.
Lapeyrouse said that this gives the Planning and Zoning Commission time to re-write the ordinance.
