Amherst Town Hall gets it right
Not since the 'Smoking Ban in Bars War' 15 years ago has the the little college town of Amherst seen such a successful implementation of a new ordinance.
The much needed Rental Permit Bylaw went into effect last year after health & safety problems within the lucrative industry spanning a generation (or two).
Building Commissioner Rob Morra has issued a heads up email to all 1,353 property owners and managers and is even offering free informational sessions to make the process even easier.
Those who required a "parking plan" in year one will not need one upon renewal as long as the plan remains the same.
Memo to all rental property owners
And best of all -- with the town getting more and more digitally savvy -- all the paperwork can done online.
