Hi, I am new to this forum. I have been hosting for about 6 months and really enjoy it!
My very small city is contemplating a short stay rental ordinance and I am fine with being licensed and inspected and so forth (I am a former licensed Bed & Breakfast Innkeeper). One of the provisions in the proposed ordinance is that I must require a minimum stay of three days. While I know many hosts prefer minimum stays, it’s not important to me. I can’t figure out why the city would care. Anybody have an idea on this?
I just found out yesterday that there is a “listening session” tonight for public comment on the ordinance, which I will attend. I’d just like to hear a few arguments for and against if possible. A small thing I know, but would appreciate any input. BTW, the other proposal on the table is to make short term rentals illegal in the city, so I really want to do all I can to quash that!
