SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Opponents of  San Diego's new short-term rental regulations are accusing the city council of violating the Brown Act when it passed the new rules earlier this month. 

A letter drafted by an attorney on behalf of Air B and B, Home Away and Share San Diego was sent to the council Monday. 

It alleges the council violated the law when it made significant changes to the original proposal up for approval and then voted without allowing for more public comment. 

What they passed would essentially ban people from renting out anything other than their primary residence or a guesthouse on their property. 

The opponents are asking the council to hold another hearing. 

The city council is scheduled to hear a second reading of the short-term rental regulations Wednesday, August 1.
