“The new compliance program provides resources that allow us to fairly enforce our community’s short-term rental rules,” said City Manager Mike Hodge in the statement. “Our priority is to make the home-sharing economy work for everyone in Marble Falls, whether they’re a property owner, manager, neighbor, tourist, or local business owner.”
The program allows property owners to register short-term rentals online, renew existing short-term rental permits, and easily pay hotel occupancy taxes.
It also offers a hotline for neighbors to report short-term rentals that aren’t compliant with local rules. The hotline allows neighbors an option to file complaints on short-term rentals for problematic activities such as excessive noise, illegal parking, or overflowing trash.
