Babylon Village reportedly proposes ban on Airbnb rentals

Posted: Updated:

The Babylon Village board may soon ban short-term rentals from services like Airbnb.

The village claims the rentals can make homes "overcrowded and dangerous," and are a drain on municipal services, according to Newsday. 

Airbnb has 10 listings in the Town of Babylon, but it's unclear how many are in the village.

Residents suggest the village inspect the rentals rather than ban them.
