If you no longer intend to rent out your residential property/unit between July 1, 2024, and June 30, 2025, please contact city staff to obtain a Waiver Signature Card.

If you now own 5 or more units or if any are now owned in a business or corporate structure, please contact city staff to update your information and receive directions to obtain a business license.

Business license and rental permit applications/renewals submitted after August 29, 2024 (60 days) will be assessed a late penalty fee. If the business license and rental permits have not been renewed by October 28, 2024 (120 days), a uniform ordinance summons to court will be issued to the property owner.

The Rental Permit(s) will be mailed or emailed to you once the fee has been paid.
