Walla Walla bans short-term rentals

WALLA WALLA (AP) — Walla Walla City Council adopted an ordinance that bans new absentee-owner properties for use as short-term rentals.

The Walla Walla Union-Bulletin reports the ordinance, which passed Wednesday, puts a halt to the proliferation in the city of new short-term rentals whose owners inhabit them for fewer than 275 days per calendar year and rent them out for up to 29 days at a time.

Owners who register their rentals as businesses before Thursday and show they have paid applicable taxes while operating their rental, however, may continue operating their property as a short-term rental until it is sold.
