Short-term rentals benefit the area
Yes, Hank Alderfer makes a great point in his column about the history of Evergreen with short-term rentals.
Many areas are doing these short-term rentals very successfully: Salida, Durango, Leadville. They are carefully licensed, inspected and managed. They bring up to 8 percent of gross income in those areas. We could use that income to save our libraries and support our community.
