City Code Title 3.13.036, 3.13.09 and Title 4.13 (Click Here to view code) specifies requirements of short-term rentals.

All short-term rentals operating in the McCall city limits are required to have a Short-Term Rental Permit. 

Here is a list of items you will want to gather for completing your STR Permit Application.
