Green port Village’s latest proposed short-term rental law is pretty cut and dry.
“If you have a two-family house and it’s owner-occupied, you’re allowed to have a short-term rental,” Mayor George Hubbard Jr. said following an uneventful 19-minute Village Board meeting Thursday. “If you have a two-family house and it’s rented as a long-term rental, you’re allowed to have a short-term rental. Besides that, you can’t just buy a house and make it into two short-term rentals. You’re not going to be allowed to do that anymore in the village.”
That’s assuming the new proposal passes, Mr. Hubbard said. READ
