The city expects use of sites like AirBnb and HomeAway to skyrocket later this summer as the eclipse gets closer and the 500+ motel rooms in Carbondale get booked, so it sent out this reminder that householders using those sites and renting their rooms out for less than 30 days need to get a permit:
With vacation season right around the corner, the City of Carbondale wants to remind residents about new regulations for Vacation Rental Units.
The ordinance, passed by City Council in December, requires residents to obtain a license through the City’s Development Services Department when transient guests are staying at a Vacation Rental Unit for less than 30 consecutive days.
Some of these units are being listed on popular websites like Airbnb, Vacation Rentals by Owner and HomeAway.com.
Applications are available online at www.explorecarbondale.com.
