An ordinance on short-term rentals in Sevastopol took another step forward Thursday evening. The Town of Sevastopol Plan Commission approved a draft of the Short-Term Rental of Residential Dwelling Ordinance at its meeting on Thursday evening. The draft will now go before the Town Board of Supervisors on February 15 for review. Plan Commission Chair Linda Wait explains the purpose behind the proposed ordinance.
The regulation would require rental owners to obtain a short-term rental license through the State of Wisconsin and the Door County Tourism Zone Commission. According to Wait, the initial short-term rental application fee would be $500 to pay for administrative and monitoring costs. A “short-term rental” is classified as any stay of 30 days or less, and the drafted ordinance would require a minimum of a six-nights. Wait adds that a public hearing would be scheduled sometime in spring to give residents a chance to voice their opinion. You can read the proposed draft of the ordinance here.
