There seems to be a great deal of confusion regarding the AM City letter which was sent June 2015 to all owners in Anna Maria City. We have received many calls from owners that their legal counsel is informing them IF they fill out the application their vacation rental will be exempt from the April 9th vacation rental ordinance. If that were only true it would be a great day in the City of Anna Maria. This is incorrect. If you have any questions we suggest you call the City for more guidance.
The letter is meant to inform vacation rental owners that if they send in all reservations made prior to April 9th, 2015 which are for arrival for anytime in 2016 that those specific guests and rental contracts upon further review could be made exempt from the April 2015 vacation rental ordinance. It is on a guest by guest basis for those rental contracts made prior to April 9th, 2015.
As usual if you have any questions we suggest you call the City of Anna Maria.
