Opposed to Short Term Rental Regulations Proposed by Olive NY
ATTENTION ALL BUSINESS OWNERS AND CONTRACTORS WHO WORK IN AND AROUND OLIVE (SHOKAN, BOICEVILLE, WEST SHOKAN, OLIVEBRIDGE) -- IF YOUR BUSINESS IS SUPPORTED BY TOURISM or SHORT TERM RENTAL ECONOMY, PLEASE BE AWARE OF NEW REGULATIONS BEING PROPOSED BY THE TOWN OF OLIVE WHICH WILL DECIMATE YOUR BUSINESS BY UP TO 50%. This petition should be signed by ANYONE who is or may be affected by the town of Olive regulations on Short Term Rentals. Based on the proposed law, which has not gone into effect, we are very concerned about the severe and unquestionable economic impact that regulating short term rentals will have on the town of Olive's laborers and residents. We believe that up to 50% of the revenue earned by small businesses and local contractors and laborers will be eliminated with the proposed regulation from the town of Olive. Any person or business who depends on tourism, from small business owners, restaurants, cafes, shops, etc will be hit hard. The town of Olive's regulations are onerous, do not actually solve the issues they state are in play, and are only going to hurt an already economically challenged community. We are in full support of locals to earn and maintain an above average standard of living, work opportunities, and to keep their small businesses alive through a less onerous regulation on short term rentals. PLEASE FORWARD TO ANYONE WHO WILL BE AFFECTED AND ASK THEM TO SIGN.
