Public hearing over nightly rental license moratorium to be held Wednesday

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — At 6 p.m. on Wednesday the Summit County Council will hold a public hearing to discuss a proposed ordinance that would impose a moratorium on the issuance of nightly rental licenses in the unincorporated county until January 2.

The meeting is being held at the Ledges Event Center in Coalville.

The moratorium seeks to avoid an influx of license applications while the council deliberates on possible new rules for short-term rentals.

Summit County issued 699 nightly rental licenses in 2019. So far this year, the county has issued 916.

According to the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah, Summit County leads the state with 21.5% of all housing units considered nightly rentals.
