That is their message, however, everyone with a brain cell knows it always about the money.   The local liars are thinking citizens are not paying the bed tax that pays for their voter loyalty.

Everything else from their lips is a smoke screen.

I have not followed the subject here but I've heard rumblings of such restrictions.  I guess some neighborhood residents don't appreciate the transient nature of such an enterprise.

Yes.  The county requires a tax be paid (oddly my most read article... ever, it gets me listed on google above airbnb.com for our area!!!!).

 

There was a nice article out here last week about a person who refused to rent to an Asian couple via AirBnB and got hit with a fair housing violation, a huge fine, plus community service AND has to take an asian studies course in the local community college (seems a bit excessive to me).

I can see where a problem occurs so I am fully with regulation. There are condos here in my area that are renting out rooms & acting like hotels. That is not good for the other neighbors in the buiding. 

I think it should be regulated or stopped.

I haven't paid much attention but I imagin they are. There are restrictions about vacation rentals in many HOAs and even the town is getting involved with limiting where these can be done, especially near the beaches.
