(IN CASE YOU MISSED IT)

An irreverent and not always accurate view of the world

Boulder City Council weighs how to tax, regulate short-term housing rentals

By Matt Cortina
On Thursday, Aug. 27, the Boulder City Council will determine the fate of two ordinances that seek to regulate and tax short-term rentals of homes within the city. One ordinance will codify rules and regulations for any Boulder homeowner wishing to rent their home on a short-term basis on sites like Airbnb and VRBO. Those regulations could include home inspections and license requirements. The other ordinance would put forth on the November ballot a question to raise about $400,000 through a 7.5 percent tax on these short-term rentals.

An irreverent and not always accurate view of the world

They’re called “vending machines” and apparently you just press a button with letters and numbers on it — no, no, that’s not it. The real beverage robot goes into separate rooms, takes drink orders, and goes to a “bartender” robot that places the requested drink in a cooler.
