Ocean City Signs Off On New Rental License Ordinance; Better Cooperation With Online Platforms Reported

March 24, 2022

For the last couple of years, Ocean City has been working on code changes that will help ensure all rental properties are paying for rental licenses regardless of how the properties are rented, whether it is through a traditional rental agency, online or through a third-party hosting platform such as Airbnb, VRBO or Expedia, for example.
