How Governments are Maximizing Revenues with Enhanced Short-Term Rental Compliance

The COVID-19 pandemic prompted widespread travel and nonessential business restrictions. But surging demand for nearby, convenient getaways led short-term rental (STR) use to grow by 20 percent. As governments face growing budget deficits, they need to ensure all short-term rental operators pay their fair share, obtain business licenses, and operate in ways that benefit the broader community.

Join our experts from Granicus and Governing.com to hear how smart regulations and the right technology are helping governments solve STR challenges, enforce fair regulations, and generate additional income.

You’ll hear:

– How hundreds of communities have generated millions in additional revenue using software to identify STR properties, educate hosts about laws, and encourage compliance

– How to effectively regulate the growing STR phenomenon in your jurisdiction, from ordinance to enforcement

– How to cost-effectively automate the majority of your community’s STR work
