    Santa Barbara Vows to Take On Illegal Vacation Rentals

    Santa Barbara, Calif., is vowing to crack down on illegal short-term rentals. The City Council unanimously voted on April 25 to put $1.175 million toward a Short-Term Rental Enforcement Pilot Program in an attempt to cope with the issue. According to City Attorney Sarah Knecht, who presented the proposal to the council, the program wouldn’t necessarily be changing the laws regarding short-term rentals, which are permitted to operate in the select coastal zones but are illegal in all other inland areas of the city, but rather would bolster the city’s enforcement process.
