 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Okanogan County Department of Planning & Development has proposed an ordinance amending OCC 17A.270 Nightly Rentals that if adopted would eliminate the amortization period.  The ordinance if adopted would eliminate the annual permit and create a new section OCC 5.06 which would require an annual business license.  All nightly rentals will be required to comply with OCC 17A.270 as amended except those nightly rentals operating legally before September 6, 2005.  Records indicate there are approximately 16 legal pre-exiting nightly rentals operating in the Methow Review District.
