An owner who desires to use its premise as a short-term rental, must have a valid, active short-term rental permit from the city prior to using, allowing the use of, or advertising the use of the premise as a short-term rental.
Once your application has been received and approved a permit fee in the amount of $175 will be due. Permits must be re-newed annually.
