The Town of Goderich is still mulling over what to do about short term rentals.

Goderich Mayor John Grace says council is still considering how a bylaw will address concerns regarding short term rentals in the town.

“It’s all about creating a balance when it comes to short term rentals and that doesn’t mean we’re going to be anything like Grand Bend or Bayfield or Port Elgin, but balanced and determined by Goderich, for Goderich. So it’s got to be a made-in-Goderich program,” said Grace.
