DENVER - After at least one person was ticketed for renting her Denver home on the vacation rental site AirBnB, the Denver City council is examining how to deal with the "sharing economy."
Nissa Rothman started renting out her "Colfax Casita" on AirBnB after she lost her job.
"The income I received from AirBnB helped me continue to pay my mortgage," said Rothman.
However, when she started to build another rental space in her back yard, neighbors started to complain about strangers and traffic, and the city ordered her to stop renting out her property, Rothman said.
Now, she is only listing her site for 30-day rentals.
