Extension of Time to Renew Short-Term Rental Permits

Under the City’s Short-Term Rental (STR) ordinance, the deadline to renew existing short-term rental permits was March 15, 2020, and permit holders may pay a late fee of fifty dollars ($50) to extend the time for filing to renew to April 15, 2020. In a continued effort to practice social distancing and encourage residents to do business online, by phone, or by mail, the City is granting permit holders an additional thirty (30) days to pay a late fee and obtain an extension. The new deadline for paying a late fee and filing a renewal application is May 15, 2020.  


How to submit application?

You can submit your application for renewal of your existing STR permit by mail or email. 

If renewing by mail, please submit your application and payment to the Short Term Rental Office address listed below. You will need to include a check with your application. In addition to the $50 late fee, you will need to submit the applicable renewal fee (the annual renewal fee is $325 for residential or accessory STR units, and $100 for non-residential or resort units). The check must have the address or license number of the unit location written in the memo field.
