MALIBU—The Malibu City Council will hold a public hearing to discuss the proposed Short-Term Rental Ordinance. On July 1, 2009, an ordinance was approved in the city of Malibu that allowed homes and other business facilities the ability to rent or lease for 30 days or less. Under the ordinance, individuals had to register with the city of Malibu, and have a transient occupancy tax.

The tax is charged to the tenant and given to the city by the owner of the home or establishment which is being rented or leased. In April 2015, Airbnb began charging hotel taxes, as well as collecting taxes to give to the city of Malibu. In June 2016, the city of Malibu started limiting short-term rentals.

The public hearing to discuss the proposed Short-Term Rental Ordinance will take place during the Malibu City Council meeting on Wednesday, September 26, at 5:00 p.m. at Malibu City Hall.

City Hall is located at 23825 Stuart Ranch Road, Malibu CA 90265. The city encourages public attendance and participation in the hearing. The meeting will be broadcast live on Malibu City TV, online at and, and will be available to view on-demand the next day at
