Collierville may have to allow return of Airbnb, if TN bill becomes law

Collierville Tennessee may open up Airbnb and Homeaway services for residents to start renting out their Collierville properties to people coming to stay for a short while. One Collierville resident said that she was making $1500 a month from renting out a an apartment behind her home and that the ban on Airbnb has made a significant impact on her income.

James Lewellen is Collierville’s town administrator. He said town officials plan to contact elected officials to voice opposition to the proposed measure.

“We think it’s a bad law,” Lewellen said. “We’ve already gotten input from our community and understand what our community wanted.”

Public officials in Collierville believe the issue should be handled locally. Lewellen said short-term rentals were banned after neighbors voiced concerns. News Source

Not to the defense of the thieves but not one of the stolen vehicles were locked when they were stolen. Even worse, there were guns stolen from cars in Collierville TN with a total of 37 stolen guns in total being taken from Collierville vehicles in 2017.

Since the beginning of 2018, thieves have stolen from 35 vehicles in Collierville.

And 100 percent of those vehicles were unlocked.

The thieves took money, a drone, hunting equipment, a radar detector, along with eight firearms that include several shotguns and a Glock 32.

“In 2017, we lost 37 guns in cars out here. Now those are 37 guns that are in the hands of criminals right now,” said Collierville Police Department Assistant Chief Jeff Abeln. “If you’re going to carry a firearm, don’t leave it in your vehicle and for goodness sake, don’t leave it in an unlocked vehicle.”
