Short Term Rental Ordinances Discussed Tonight
Written by Andrew-Rossi on April 3, 2018
The Cody City Council tonight will consider passing on second reading ordinances that would affect people who own short term rentals.
For the eighty or so homes in the city limits that are either bed and breakfast inns or that are rented out for less than 30 days at a time, those homeowners are bound by certain rules and must pay fees to the City. There will be a public hearing tonight on two ordinances that will modify the rules for those short-term rentals that lie in commercial zones.
The City modified the ordinances for short term rentals in residential zones a year ago – and Cody City Administrator Barry Cook says that tonight’s public hearing, and second reading of the ordinances, simply bring the same rules to the thirty or so rentals that lie in commercial zones.
Also at tonight’s meeting, Council will hear the first reading of an ordinance addressing unreasonable noise in the City limits, and an ordinance that would make the use of e-cigarettes by people under the age of 18 illegal.
