  • Since the city is tracking some non-compliant short term rentals, are they going to get a pass? Or perhaps a one time "forgiveness" if/when you create new regulations? Or just a bill to catch up on sales tax when you put some regulations in place? My thought is a combination of a fixed fee to come in compliance or a bill for missing revenue. They should not just get a complete forgiveness for violating the existing laws.

    Thank you for your comments! Part of the discussion around new regulations for short-term rentals will include whether or not to "grandfather" existing permitted short-term rentals. For those who do not have a permit, several options could be considered to come into compliance including your suggestions.
