Short-Term Rentals Update
New webpages have been added to the Town’s website providing detailed information on the rental presence on the island. Property owners can now obtain location information on rentals by viewing the rental location map. A 24-hour hotline and online reporting form have been established to serve as a resource for residents to report any problems.
The Town’s amended short-term rental (STR) ordinance becomes effective January 1, 2020. Click here for information on the changes. Town Council voted to add code enforcement officers to patrol the island in the evening. The officers will focus primarily on STR compliance and respond to any complaints after hours. Also, an STR compliance clerk position was added to aid in compliance measures, accommodation taxes audit, and processing STR business licenses.
