Local Leaders Debate Short Term Rental Regs

(TUPPER LAKE, NY) – Town leaders in North Elba and Lake Placid Village still trying to figure out how to regulate short-term vacation rentals. The discussion centers on whether owner-occupied vs. non-owner-occupied rentals should be treated differently. Those who live on the premises would have the fees waived. Those who would rent out their property for less than 14 days a year would not have to file for a permit but would still have to be up to code, like any other person renting out a home. The town and village attorney will work on drafting new legislation in the next two weeks. Then a public hearing will be held.
