I work for a county that has 4 world class ski resorts. We have a shit ton of short term rentals. We have actually hired a nation wide company that helps handle this shit. People that have STR's have to register and pay an additional tax, they have to be in compliance with occupancy and parking codes as well. Trash also seems to be a big problem when you cram too many people in a place for a vacation weekend. We just started doing this. The GIS department I work for feeds them data as far as address locations and such.

On the other hand, if the renters don't get what they expect, they have somebody to call to lodge a complaint, and get service. The owners of these units usually live hundreds if not thousands of miles away.

I think a lot of communities are having problems with this. We'll see how it goes.
I don't live in the middle of nowhere, but I can see it from here.
