Pre-BOCC Update for June 17 Meeting

The upcoming Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) meeting will address several more issues dealing with Vacation Home Rentals (VHRs), but this meeting should complete our work in this area for the immediate future. 

The BOCC will approve a revision to the permit fees so that the program will pay for the entire cost of enforcement.

A good sign that the additional enforcement implemented by the Board is working is that the Board will hear four appeals of fines recently issued by enforcement staff for VHR violations.

Finally, the BOCC’s will replace one of the members it had previously appointed to the VHR Advisory Board. After the appointment, it was discovered that one of the members did not live full-time in Lake Tahoe, a requirement to sit on the Board. 

In addition to the VHR issues, the BOCC will hear presentations regarding the 2021 Legislative Session and bills and other legislative issues impacting Douglas County.

To close the meeting, the BOCC will also discuss and evaluate the job performance of County Manager, Patrick Cates.


Small Business Saturday

This past weekend, I was excited to feature a small business located in the Lake Tahoe area. Still Water Yoga provides a variety of yoga classes for people of all ages and levels. It's an excellent way to stay active and reflect, while enjoying the beautiful surroundings of South Lake Tahoe.
Still Water Yoga is located at 298 Kingsbury, Suite 2I & 2J, Stateline, NV 89449

If your business, or the business of someone you know, would like to be featured on my Small Business Saturdays series, please email me at

All the best, 

Commissioner Danny Tarkanian

In order to better serve our community, I am sending out emails before and after each public meeting of the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), in order to educate the public of what the BOCC is doing.
