Bartlett finalizes short-term property rental guidelines

The Bartlett mayor and city board wrapped up business on short-term property rentals at the July 10 Bartlett city board meeting.

They had the final reading on new zoning ordinance changes to set guidelines for safe and reasonable operation of short-term rental units and to specify zones that permit such rentals.
