Amador Supes Reverse Course On Short-Term Rental Issue

The Amador Board of Supervisors has reversed course on the issue of short term rentals, dropping an effort to write a county ordinance regulating Air BNB and similar services at their meeting Tuesday. Back in February, the board directed the county planning commission to draft an ordinance regulating short term rentals, after receiving complaints from the public about such units. The planning commission has spent several meetings working on the subject. However, board members have found the draft ordinance imposed too many regulations, and have directed county staff instead to prepare a “nuisance ordinance” that would more generally regulate disruptive activity in all areas of the county, rather than specific regulations for short –term rentals. The board also voted to freeze their pay. Previously, members of the board of supervisors were paid 35% of what a California superior court judge is paid, and the supervisor’s pay automatically increased when the state raised judge’s pay. Under the resolution passed Tuesday, the supervisor’s salary is set at the current level of $72,598 a year and will not increase automatically when judge’s salaries are increased. The board would have to pass a new resolution to increase its own salary.
