Letter: Crack down on short-term rentals – The Columbian

0 minutes, 43 seconds Read

Kudos to the city of Vancouver for attempting to control the growth of short-term rentals within the city limits (“Vancouver sets public hearing on short-term rentals, most of which are technically illegal in city,” The Columbian, Dec. 14). The troubling part of this story is the refusal of nonelected officials to enforce laws and regulations already in effect. According to the article, short-term rentals are currently banned in residential zones unless they are bed-and-breakfasts: “City officials have not enforced the law, however.” The same could and should be said about state laws requiring up-to-date registration of vehicles.
