The Knoxville City Council passed new rules overseeing short-term rentals like Airbnb. The ordinance was passed 7-2 on Tuesday night.
The new rules include charging for permits, sales taxes and occupancy tax.
City officials have debated for months how to treat in-home rentals. The city also has held several public workshops.
Those against the idea say allowing rentals like Airbnb could negatively impact neighborhoods, but supporters say the move will be good for neighborhoods, tourists and technology.
The plan still needs a second approval from the council before it goes into effect.
