Short-Term Rental Licensing Ordinance

he East Bay Charter Township Board of Trustees approved a Short-Term Rental Licensing Ordinance, along with an accompanying code reference in the Zoning Ordinance, at its June 11, 2018 meeting. While the ordinance took "legal effect" on June 21, 2018, it will not go into "operational effect" until the Board of Trustees approves the associated fees, application, and application timetable. The Township is researching firms which aid in the implementation of the ordinance, as well as 24/7/365 complaint receipt and resolution services.     
 
It is anticipated that applications will start being accepted sometime in September with an initial compliance deadline of December 31st.   
 
The principal geographic limitation of the ordinance relates to dwellings located in subdivisions and condominium developments where the covenants and restrictions or the master deed and bylaws limit uses to single-family residential.  A complete copy of the approved ordinance may be accessed HERE.
