Comments for Short Term Residential Rentals
The Village continues to seek comments from the public on short-term residential rentals (Air B&B) over the next couple months. So far, I have received many comments and emails from residents and I am proud to say that the responses so far have not only been civil, they have been informative and solution-based. Please email me your comments on short-term residential rentals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
