Here’s a video from a local news channel in Austin, Texas, about what the city’s three-month-old short-term rental ordinance has been met with by the the multitude. In a word: Procrastination.
While most are “waiting” till after the South By Southwest Festival to obtain short-term rental permits for their properties, officials say that the process of obtaining one can take as little as six days. Officials also admit, however, that they currently lack the funding and staffing to actively enforce the ordinance. Perhaps forbearance really does necessarily beget procrastination?
SXSW takes place from March 8 to March 17.
