JOPLIN, Mo. – If you own an Airbnb or Vrbo listing in Joplin, new rules will go into effect soon on how you do business.
A new city ordinance will begin next week with several requirements.
“Short-term rentals” now require a Certificate of Residence and a Business License. Each unit must list curator contact information, the city’s recycling/trash schedule, and the city’s Noise Ordinance. Distance is also on the list, although current activities will be aggregated for the first 30 days.
“There is a period of time if you are running these things in our community, to report them to the city, to get them registered. Because after 30 days after January 24, if you file an application and have one within 200 feet of your property, you will not be eligible to operate,” said Joplin Mayor Ryan Stanley.
The new Ordinance also prohibits the use of the Short-Term Rental Service exclusively for a party, reception or related event.
