URGENT: Write the Commissioners to Lift the STR Ban Now!
As you know, last month Chelan County Commissioners issued an emergency resolution banning STRs until May 4th coinciding with Governor Inslee's "Stay at Home" order. Yesterday, the Governor extended his order through the end of May, begging the question of whether our Chelan County would also extend the STR ban through May.
We hear the Commissioners are considering lifting the ban sooner, but haven't decided for sure. So they need to hear from you now. Let them know how much your businesses are hurting and that there's no rationale for banning STRs while hotels, inns and campgrounds remain open. Remind them that both state and federal guidelines consider STRs an "essential service" like long-term rentals and hotels, and that we can help provide safe shelter for first responders and vulnerable populations who need to isolate. There's no good reason for Chelan County to continue unfairly targeting the STR industry.
So we need you to Write the Commissioners by Monday at 8am urging them to lift the STR ban so we can get our businesses and the local economy back up and running. You can use our easy email template by clicking the button below or write them your own email at the addresses below. Encourage all your friends in STR industry to do so too.
