Dallas homeowners are not satisfied with Dallas' conversation about how to get a handle on short-term rentals in the city.

After hearing what Dallas City Council members considered more rules for short-term rentals, some residents want council members to reconsider the price tag of that option first.

Dallas homeowners want the city to ban short-term rentals in single-family neighborhoods.

                                                                                          

They are irritated by loud parties drowning out the sound of wildlife. Mary Nagler, one of the frustrated homeowners used her business expertise to create a cost-benefit analysis that shows 911 noise has the highest cost.

Nagler says she did a blind sample of 40 Dallas short-term rentals and looked at the number of calls for service over seven months. She then multiplied the calls by the amount the city said it costs to respond to different types of complaints, ranging from noise to parking to littering.

She said, "The total cost was just under $540,000 to Dallas taxpayers just for seven months."

Dallas will look for public input about how to manage short-term rentals in the city at its first public meeting on the topic next month.
