Despite injunction, mayor pledges to push forward with vacation rentals crackdown
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu’s mayor says the city will defend its right to restrict short-term rentals.
And he’s ready to begin a crackdown Monday.
“A big part of this ― and we’ve talked a lot about ― enforcement is gonna come from the communities themselves. I really feel that way because having listened to people and how upset they’ve been and what its done,” Mayor Rick Blangiardi said.
The announcement comes after a judge granted a preliminary injunction to stop the city’s enforcement of a new law that restricts the rentals that requires a minimum 90-day stay in temporary vacation rentals outside of resort areas.
The city plans to use an online system to identify illegal short-term rentals advertising.
