Title
Treasurer-Tax Collector recommending the Board approve, in concept, amendments to County Ordinance Code Chapter 5.56 for Vacation Home Rentals in the Lake Tahoe Basin; and proposed County Ordinance Code Chapter 5.57 for the West Slope of El Dorado County.

Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost: None
