The ordinance goes into effect on April 20th 2013. I will be able to accept applications at that time.
13. I would like to sign the application but I do have concern with saying that I give you the right to enter the subject property for inspection. I would like clarity on this application that this clearly does not include entering the building. I also don’t know what the following clause refers to “related to the project and request identified in this application” What project? What request?
I will need to enter the building to review all of the criteria that is on the application. The “project” is the short term rental.
The request is for the license.
12. I also would like to get some written clarification of what is considered a violation of the ordinance. And that it clearly states that the valuations refer to the property owner’s actions not the renter’s actions.
Section 4 # 10 of the ordinance states that Tenants could violate the ordinance by
creating a nuisance. The ordinance then defines what a nuisance is. The township understands that an
owner/operator cannot guarantee that all tenants behave all the time but that procedures can be put in
place to educate your tenants to minimize future problems.
11. What if I have 2013 rental contracts that we had in place prior to the ordinance going into effect. I would like to get some assurance from the township in writing, that I will not be in violation of the ordinance (particularly if I have more than the maximum people allowed renting ) this season.
The Board of Trustees recognizes that owners may have contracts signed for the 2013 summer months. They have
instructed the ZA to fully implement the Short Term Rental Ordinance by Labor Day 2013. This does not
mean you do not need a license by then, or that other rules do not apply. Our expectations are that you
still meet most of the other conditions on the ordinance.
