College Station is in the beginning stages of creating an ordinance that will regulate short-term rental housing.
At Thursday night’s city council meeting, council members directed staff to start drafting an ordinance that could address information including how to collect hotel occupancy taxes, the implementation of safety regulations and inspections, and a registration process.
In his presentation, Assistant City Manager Brian Piscacek pointed to the Texas Tax Code, which requires the collection of occupancy taxes from all hotels and short-term rentals. City Manager Bryan Woods said an ordinance would help provide a means for the city to collect the taxes.
While councilman John Crompton said he is concerned with collecting HOT funds, he added that he is more interested in the impact on the neighborhoods and investigating “protective measures” for them as the ordinance is drafted.
“My problem is that I don’t know what level of protection we’ve got now compared to the capacity … or how far we are from pushing the boundaries,” Crompton said. “From my perspective, I want to push the boundaries as far as we can.”
