LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — If you're looking to host short-term rental guests in Lafayette, you could soon pay $100 for a permit.

Back in August, an ordinance was passed to require the owner of a rental, including Airbnb, to get a permit.

There's now another ordinance before the Lafayette City Council that would set the permit fee at $100. That would cover administrative time and effort to review the applications.

There's good news for people who were hosting short-term rental guests before August.

"Anyone who was already operating a transient rental at the time the ordinance was adopted is grandfathered in and is not required to obtain the permit," said Jacqueline Chosnek, an attorney.

The council will vote on the measure on Monday.
