Three important discussions regarding Short Term Rentals in Truckee:
The Town’s ordinance regarding short term rentals has not been significantly updated since the Town incorporated in 1993. The Town Council has instructed staff to commence with anupdate processin early 2020. Host Compliance has been hired to facilitate the public discussion and solicitation of feedback from all stakeholders. The Town will be reaching out to all registered owners. Please stay tuned and be part of the process!
The 2% Truckee Tourism Business Improvement District (TTBID) collection was enabled in 2015 and set to expire on September 30, 2020. The current TTBID Board is considering asking the short term rental owners to renew the TTBID for another five year period. Please seehttps://www.truckee.com/ttbidfor further information about the proposed renewal.
The Town Council has created an ad hoc committee to consider placing a measure on the November 2020 ballot to increase the Town’s TOT collections to fund housing related projects aimed at the local workforce. As you may be aware, housing is a critical priority for the Town Council and the Town as a whole as workers cannot afford to live in town or are forced to pay a burdensome amount for their housing. This tax increase would work similarly to the sales-tax based add-on taxes in Truckee which support roads and trails, having our visitors contribute to the overall well-being of the community.
Town staff will continue to update all short term rental property owners on these issues. Please feel free to reach out to us with questions or comments atTOT@townoftruckee.com
Christmas Tree Recycling:We hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Recycle your Christmas tree at one of four collection bins available December 26 - January 17 located at Tahoe Donner Northwoods Clubhouse, Glenshire Clubhouse, Truckee High School Soccer Fields, and Truckee Airport (near Truckee Roundhouse and Tahoe Food Hub). Trees will also be picked up curbside on your trash day the week of January 13-17. Please cut trees into 3-foot segments and be sure to remove all decorations. Winter Servicing:On your collection day, please place your trash cans & recycling carts behind the snow poles. This will ensure that the Town’s Roads Crew can safely plow the road and TTSD can collect your trash and recycling. Got extra trash?Each household is allotted one 32-gallon can of trash picked up each week. Any overage will be charged for. Save money and schedule a free overage ahead of time through yourcustomer account at waste101.com. With a scheduled overage, up to 3 extra cans or bags (96-gallons total) of extra trash will be collected for FREE up to 4 times per year. Learn more about trash overage charges and how to schedule a free overagehere. Unlawful use of another household’s bear box, placing waste next to it, or dumping in a businesses’ private dumpster is illegal and punishable by fines. Please inform your renters how to properly dispose of extra waste! Recycling:Carts are now available for all neighborhoods excluding Tahoe Donner. Recycling is different in every city—please provide the attached recycling guide to inform your renters how to recycle in Truckee. Carts will be delivered to Tahoe Donner in summer 2020. Order yours by calling TTSD at (530) 583-7800. If you do not have a cart at your household, please provide blue bags for recycling.
