Mayor Wayne Redekop suggested a tiered fee system of $750 for two bedrooms and $1,250 for three bedrooms with the number of bedrooms in STRs capped at three and an eight-occupant maximum for that number of bedrooms.
He also proposed no more than 250 STRs allowed, with current, in-compliance licence holders be given an early opportunity to renew. That amendment was approved.
The mayor also wanted the issuance of licences limited for now to those already approved, and those in the application process until staff comes back with a report from staff on land use control.
All the mayor’s amendments were approved as was the amended information report.
