Letter: South Lake Tahoe VHR fines are out of control (opinion)

I own a vacation rental property in South Lake Tahoe and my guest was just fined $1,000 for having a car parked in a dirt area in front of the house.

The car was not on the street but on a dirt area of my property. The car belonged to some family who came to visit for a couple hours for dinner. A neighbor called and complained.

The police hired responded to an email of mine saying permanent residences can do what they want but vacation rentals can’t park on the street. I said this wasn’t the street and he said it has to be a paved area. As a former law enforcement officer, I believe this is ridiculous. There should be some discretion, but he said that the City Council told him that everyone must be fined.
