Tybee Updates Emergency Declaration and Ordinance to Address STVRs
The Tybee Island City Council met Thursday afternoon to update its Emergency Declaration and Ordinance to address restaurant alcohol sales and short term vacation rentals (STVRs).
The council voted to prohibit new guest check-ins for STVRs beginning at noon on April 3 and extending to midnight April 30. The ordinance applies to all operators, owners or managers of STVRs, hotels, motels, bed & breakfasts and all other rental lodging accommodations. The ordinance does not apply to first responders or public safety personnel in need of shelter.
The ordinance also clarifies that restaurants licensed to sell beer and wine for on-premises consumption may sell unopened bottles or cans of beer or wine for take-out consumption off-premises only while the emergency order is in effect.
