  Community Spotlight  

Do you have a room or portion of your home that lends itself to overnight or weekly visitors? As more and more visitors are attracted to our community, the need for overnight vacation rentals has grown.

Would you like to learn what it takes to become a lodging host? In the months of August, September, and October the city will be hosting some information sessions about this type of business. Come to one of these information sessions to learn about the city requirements for a short-term rental license.
