New short-term rental permit fees approved

Town Councilors on July 13, 2020 voted 6-1 in favor of approving fee changes for short-term rentals. Permits for short-term rentals, effective immediately, will be $250 and increase to $500 on Jan. 1, 2021.  Prior to the vote, the fee was $50.

The increase stems from an ordinance review of short-term rentals which determined the need to contract third-party enforcement for one year.  The third party enforcement software would help with alleviating the load on local law enforcement officers by tracking and enforcing short-term rental regulations.  The contract runs from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Code Enforcement Officer, Benjamin McDougal,  anticipates that this service will immediately help monitor the scope and scale of problems associated with short-term rental activity.
