After a contentious public hearing Monday night, the Weston Board of Aldermen passed four ordinances that confirmed that short term rentals may take place under the state hotel/motel laws and under the Weston Bed and Breakfast ordinances. Short term rentals outside the existing laws were never permitted in Weston, but after several people bought homes thinking they could operate them, the Aldermen decided they needed to codify what was allowed and what wasn't.  The changes were also spurred by recent bills in the Missouri Legislature that would have denied cities and counties the right to regulate short term rentals, if passed.
