GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - The City of Grand Rapids isn't going to interfere with homeowners who want to rent rooms in their houses for overnight or to short term tenants.

At least, not for the time being.

It's already illegal for homeowners to offer a room for short-term rental in Grand Rapids, but members last night rejected an ordinance to make illegal to "advertise" a room for rent and promised more study of the entire home-sharing issue.

Bed and Breakfast owners say "short-term room renters" are trying to cut into their business without facing the same legal requirements.
