Town of Sevastopol residents can currently rent out their homes to vacationers without township approval. That may soon change. The town's Property Management Committee is considering a draft ordinance on licensing and regulation of short-term rentals. Town Supervisor Linda Wait says the ordinance proposal is designed to have consistent operational guidelines and address some issues raised by neighbors.
The draft ordinance on short-term home rentals is similar to one adopted by the City of Sturgeon Bay. The proposal must now be considered by the full town board to decide whether further action is needed.
