Question from Paul Vose (resident): "Have there been any complaints to the Police Department regarding Short Term Rentals this year?"

Response from Chief Googins, Police Department: 
 The only way to retrieve data this specific is a word search of our dispatch calls.  Only one incident came up during that search and it had to do with harassment during the STR petition drive.  Even the parking complaint you mention which was a STR issue did not come up.
