The first reading of the overnight rental occupancy has passed with a 6-3 vote. This ordinance is to restrict the amount of people that can occupy a residence on the Isle of Palms if a rental license is purchased after April 27, 2010. If passed, anyone who gets a license to rent, will be limited to a max of 10 renters per dwelling. For those who already have a license, they will be grandfathered in as long as they don’t let their license expire.
