Illegal TVR enforcement would solve problem

Regarding the Aug. 21 article in The Maui News titled “Testifiers: Action needed now to curb overtourism”: The county contracted a company to root out illegal vacation rentals in our neighborhoods. If they used this service the problem would be solved. No studies, no moratoriums, problem solved.

More housing would be freed up for local residents and the cost of monthly rents would be reduced. A reduction in visitors would occur when prices go up for the hotels and legal TVRs.

Enforce the zoning laws. It’s the right thing to do and it’s your job.
