Short-term Rentals in Shenandoah- In April, Council requested a 90-day study of short-term rental homes. Four homes were identified though AirBNB and VRBO as active properties rented similarly to hotel rooms for a nightly rate. These homes were monitored from April 9 through June 25 for dispatched calls through the Montgomery County law enforcement CAD system and the City’s EGOV records database. Only one call for service was documented on the four properties. No code violations were documented in the EGOV municipal database. Discussion only.
