HR Council Considers STR Fees And Regulations

Hood River City Councilors began to look at operational regulations for short-term rentals at a special meeting Tuesday evening.  Councilors reviewed a preliminary draft that will come back to them at their June 27 meeting at the earliest.  The fee to register STR’s will be set by resolution rather than ordinance, but City Manager Steve Wheeler says right now a figure between $200 and $250 is being considered.  These regulations would be regardless of where an STR is located, but there is still a question of how far the Council can go with these until decisions are made on the zoning issues of where STR’s are allowed.  Those deliberations stalled in a split vote last month, with the Council establishing an up to six month moratorium on all new STR’s in residential zones while attempts are made to find agreement.
