South Lake Tahoe police issue warnings to rental home owners


DANA: VISITORS FLOCK TO SOUTH LAKE TAHOE FOR THE BEAUTY THIS TIME OF YEAR. BUT THE CROWDS CAN CAUSE TENSION WITH FULL TIME RESIDENTS. SO THE CITY WILL START SNATCHING VACATION RENTAL PERMITS IF PROPERTIES CONTINUE TO BE A NUISANCE>>BASICALLY, IT’S A 3 STRIKES, YOU’RE OUT RULE. DANA: BROKEN RULES LIKE LOUD NOISES, TRASH, OR TOO MANY OCCUPANTS CAN CAUSE THE CITY TO FINE BOTH THE PROPERTY OWNER AND THE GUEST $1,000.>>THE LITTER. THE LITTER’S THE WORST. DANA: THREE FINES WITHIN A 24 MONTH PERIOD AND THE PROPERTY WILL LOSE ITS PERMIT.>>OBVIOUSLY, YOU GOTTA RESPECT THE NEIGHBORHOOD. YOU KNOW THE LOCALS REALLY DON’T APPRECIATE THE REALLY LO NOISES PAST 10:00 OR 11:00.>>I FEEL LIKE IT’S NOT REALLY THE NUISANCE OF BEING LOUD. I FEEL LIKE PEOPLE JUST DON’T WANT YOU TO JUST ACT LIKE IT’S YOUR HOUSE AND YOU CAN THROW YOUR TRASH WHEREVER YOU WANT OR OUT YOUR FEET WHEREVER YOU WANT LIKE THAT’S NOT HOW IT IS. DANA: OUT OF THE 1400 RENTAL PROPERTIES, THE CITY HAS ISSUED 40 OF THESE LETTERS TO VACATION HOMES THAT ALREADY HAVE 1 OR 2 CITATIONS. AS YOU WOULD EXPECT WHEN PEOPLE ARE ON VACATION, SOMETIMES WANT TO PARTY A LITTLE BIT OR HAVE FUN OR DO THINGS THAT MIGHT NOT ORDINARILY HAPPEN IN REGULAR OLD NEIGHBORHOODS RIGHT. DANA: IT’S THE HOMEOWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM GUESTS OF THE RULES. BUT SUDDEN PERMIT REVOCATIONS COULD MAKE FOR A HORRIBLE VACATION EXPERIENCE FOR PEOPLE WHO’VE BOOKED HOMES. AND THE CITY WON’T STEP IN TO HELP.>>I GUESS THE SHORT ANSWER IS, THAT’S NOT NECESSARILY OUR PROBLE DANA: THE VACATION HOME RENTAL CAN ALSO LOSE ITS PERMIT IF THE HOMEOWNER DOESN’T PAY THE TRANSIENT OCCUPANCY TAX OR IF THAT PAYMENT IS LATE. IN SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, DANA
