Bluff Town Council votes to close short-term rentals

March 26, 2020

Note: The Bluff Town Council posted the following letter on Thursday morning:

Last night, after much discussion with residents, business owners, and emergency service personnel, the Bluff Town Council voted unanimously to restrict short term rentals. This includes, but is not limited to, motels, hotels, AirBnb and VRBOs, campgrounds and RV parks. This policy is effective immediately.

All short-term rentals must vacate by Sunday, March 29, at the business’ customary check out time. The restaurants have voluntarily closed and there is no food service other than at the K and C which has take-out service only. The K and C is deemed to be an “essential service.”

A more detailed declaration will be forthcoming and will be posted in the customary places: the website, the Bluff Community Center, the Bluff Post Office, and by email through the town of Bluff and the Business Owners of Bluff email lists.

Please adhere to all CDC recommendations by social distancing, limiting groups to 10 or less, washing hands, and limiting travel. If you experience symptoms of the COVID-19 virus, please contact your medical provider for direction. The welfare and safety of all of Bluff and the wider community are of paramount concern.

If you have any questions, please leave a message at 435-672-9990 and one of the town council will be in touch with you.
