PUBLIC HEARING
SHORT TERM RENTAL ORDINANCE
AUGUST 22, 2022 6:30PM

The hearing was called to order by the Supervisor at 6:30 with all Board members present and 18 visitors in attendance. This hearing was convened to discuss the proposed Short Term Rental Ordinance. Copies of the proposed ordinance were available to the public. The citizens present were in favor of the ordinance and were mostly interested in the details of what the ordinance addresses. Some concerns included the limitation of persons per bedroom, address posting, and septic system overload. The fact that responsible home owners would already have adequate smoke detectors and regular septic cleanings was noted. When discussing the occupancy restrictions, the ages that this would apply to was discussed as well. The Clerk will contact the township attorney regarding section 01-04, 1 (b)(1) in order to clarify the wording and intent. This ordinance will be reviewed again at the regular meeting of September 26, 2022. A motion was made by Smith and supported by Shaw to adjourn and we were dismissed at 7:00 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Margie Shaw, Clerk
