I am curious why the city continues to ignore Florida Statute 509. By definition homes being offered for occupancy as Transient or Non-Transient Public lodging establishments are required by this law to be licensed commercial businesses subject to all rules, regulations and taxes. In their operation they further violate the residential zoning regulations here on Marco. So the City again bows to money interests, fails to uphold state law and fails to maintain the residential character of our neighborhoods.
Legitimate, tax paying businesses, who conform in every respect to local ordinances, lose income on a daily basis as our city loses tax revenues.
Law abiding residents lose the character and value of ownership as a constant stream of daily and weekly rentals flow in and out, unregulated, bringing with them whatever they wish.
