City of Marco Island continues to take steps to implement its short-term rental registration program, a referendum passed at the polls in August and was approved as an ordinance by City Council in December.
In late 2022, the city signed a contract with local government service GovOS to implement the program. Additionally, six full-time positions were added to city staff to accommodate it, with two full-time workers — a rental program supervisor and permit clerk — making up the new short-term rental department. Two full-time fire inspectors also will be hired along with two more code enforcement officers.
On Dec. 23, the city provided GovOS the property and parcel data needed to begin investigations on homes being used as short-term rentals. Implementation of the project is approximately halfway finished.
