Cape Charles Town Council is held a special meeting on April 16 to review an ordinance that would make it a Class 3 misdemeanor to operate short-term rentals in Cape Charles for as long as the Governor’s executive orders remain in effect.
Following the adoption of a declaration of local emergency by the Town Council on March 30; the Mayor issued a formal request for all short-term rental operations to cease until state guidance eased restrictions on travel.
