In May 2020, the Franklin County Board of Supervisors approved a new registry requirement for all property owners conducting short-term rentals.
This ordinance contains language for exempt properties as well as fines for failure to register your property. The annual registration fee is $200 but has been prorated this year for the term of October 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. After this initial registration period, property owners will be required to renew their registration prior to July 1, 2021 if they continue to use the property as a short-term rental.
