Ordinance for Marco Island Vacation Rentals Approved on Second Vote

On December 5th, the Marco Island City Council passed an ordinance setting up a rental registration process as part of their continued efforts to keep vacation rentals under control. The new regulations will require all rental properties to be registered and inspected by the city before they can be used for short-term stays.

The Ordinance is intended to create a better standard of knowledge among homeowners and renters when it comes to maintaining their property by zoning codes. Enforcement of these rules will ensure homes are properly managed and kept in good condition, something tourist destinations like Marco Island rely on heavily.

Under the new regulations, any unit that provides its occupants with fewer than 30 days' notice of tenancy may no longer be rented or operated without being first registered with the city's Community Development Office. This includes both leased and deed-in-lieu properties alike. Once registered, these units must undergo frequent inspections for safety concerns such as mold or structural defects. If any issue does arise, then an appropriate fix will need to be completed before occupancy can resume on the premises again.

The ordinance was created after much discussion between community members over how best to manage vacation rentals throughout Marco Island due to ongoing issues involving noise complaints, overcrowding in residential neighborhoods, parking violations, etc.

The City Council hopes that this regulation helps maintain order while at the same time providing renters more protection against fraudulent activity often experienced within specific travel accommodations - something many had mentioned during earlier meetings back in October 2018 when this proposal was initially brought forward for voting consideration. All-in-all, if effectively enforced by local oversight teams heading out into problematic areas north beach areas, Bal Harbour partners, this should provide residents some heightened security without impeding property owners’ rights too drastically through an overly strict set of lending terms which some had argued might come along as part implementation process mid-month at council meeting number two weeks ago last night; however, the initial second vote passed almost universally assisting to push forward measure timetable to begin much earlier once permits and signatures are certified and ready for rollout in January very near future, allowing us to start 2020 year off right.
