Town Of Oneonta Considers Stricter Laws On Short Term Rentals

The Town of Oneonta Board is considering placing restrictions and fines on short-term rentals through services such as AirBNB. All Otsego reports that the town planning board is looking at the issue of bigger homes where there has to be family living in them. Another issue is whether or not renting out rooms in larger homes becomes a business operation which means different regulations and requirements would apply. Currently, the town imposes a $100 fine if an owner of a short-term rental is non-compliant.
