An ordinance is in the works in Ocean Ridge that would require rental properties to register with the town, pay a fee and undergo inspection. Commissioners directed Town Attorney Ken Spillias to prepare the document at its February meeting.

Commissioners and residents discussed the measures to regulate rentals, such as illegal vacation rentals under 30 days. 

Resident suggestions  including limiting the times a home can be rented each year, as well as the number of unrelated people living in the home. 

Several talked about including a fine that would provide more of a deterrent than currently, although Spillias said it is now as high as $250 a day.
