Side stepping the established regulatory process, the Board of Health will ask short term rental owners to “self attest” compliance with dozens of regulations. Without proper regulatory approval, the forms approved today by the Board of Health could face non-compliance without consequence.
The Board is asking short term rental owners to submit: a short term rental registration, self attestation affidavit and good neighbor guidelines forms by May 28th.
“These are not regulations…these are spreading information and gathering information,” said Board of Health Chair Barry Potvin. The Board plans to pursue official regulations this fall.
