ML county board

The public addresses the board

Members of the public gathered in a nearly-filled meeting room for the public hearing regarding short-term rentals at the Mille Lacs County Board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Eleven members of the public spoke at the recent public hearing for Mille Lacs County’s proposed short-term rental ordinance. The room was filled with people at the regular meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 20, with many clearing out after the board voted to table any further action until their work session on Tuesday, Oct. 4.

Those who spoke at the public hearing were owners of the short-term rentals in question and the full-time residents who live in the communities and areas affected by them.
