Earlier this year the Austin City Council banned inside and outside gatherings with a 9-2 vote, making it illegal to have “more than six adults” congregating between the hours of 7 a.m and 10 p.m. Which would obviously include: birthday parties, backyard BBQs, family reunions, bachelor and bachelorette events, and even infringing on religious celebrations like Quinceaneras and bar mitzvahs. People that have spent top dollar to rent these (Short Term Rental properties) that are also considered private property will now be forced by the city to comply and adhere to the ordinance or be issued extortion notes. They also face the dangerous actions of having their private events & vacations raided and ransacked by the Austin police and the code compliance automatons with their clipboards walking in to jot down anything that they don’t like. The temporary residents are also prohibited from sleeping or playing any instruments past 10 p.m.
Austin, TX has a snitching app to report your fellow citizens
The Austin City Council has now drawn some resistance in the form of a growing activist group, Texas for Accountable Government, who will be holding a meeting on July 25th, to plan a peaceful protest against this draconian rule.

Dissenting council member Don Zimmerman will be there to lay it all out, and to take questions with discussions to be engaged as well. A very deserved thank you an acknowledgement to Ellen Troxclair, for the other nay vote.
The new ordinance will include restrictions on people who wish to assemble inside interior structures with a mandated 10 person maximum at a time. The law is unconcerned of the rental’s adequate capacity size by or the lawful occupancy of people it can accommodate. This regulates and punishes large property owners and blocks their ability to legally rent and make a living by offering high-capacity entertainment spaces. The City of Austin has granted their code enforcement minions the power to execute warrant-less searches at any time of “all buildings, dwelling units, guest rooms and premises” in search of any possible code violations. With the restrictions and regulations not going into effect until after 10 p.m. The possibility of the city henchmen showing up in the middle of the night to awake the occupants, snoop around, and search every corner of the room for any signs of bad behavior is a guaranteed result. Along with the Mayor Steve Adler, these are the city council members who voted yes to this business destroying, anti-freedom, and communist ordinance. I guess they belive that they have been given the royalty to crush the happiness of their fellow humans by saying yay to this dictatorial law.
