Possible New Regulations on Short Term Rentals

Possible New Regulations on Short Term Rentals

The Amador Board of Supervisors explored the possible regulation of short-term residential rentals at their meeting on Tuesday.  Responding to complaints from the public, the Board of Supervisors is moving ahead with possible new regulations on short term rentals, such as found on Air BnB and other websites.  The Supervisors heard a series of complaints about one such rental in Pine Grove, which neighbors blamed for numerous disruptions, such as “rap music at 3 am”.  The Board directed the matter to the County Planning Commission for addition hearings and discussion.   In a related matter, the Amador Council of Tourism proposed the increases in transit occupancy tax collected from residential rentals be placed in a special fund to help promote visits to the County.  The Board directed that this idea be held until the regulation issues over the short-term rental be dealt with first.    In other business, the Board voted a resolution in support of an Earth Day celebration to be held in Amador County.  The resolution passed 4-1 with Supervisor Brian Oneto opposed.  The Board also received reports on Behavioral Health services in the County and continuing efforts to removed dead and dying trees that could pose a danger to County roads.
