Third Amendment to Hinderliter de Llamas and Associates Agreement

That the Board of Supervisors:
1. Approve and authorize the County Administrative Officer to amend the Agreement with Hinderliter de Llamas & Associates (HdL) dated May 23, 2017 (Attachment 1), with a third amendment to that agreement to include a service from Granicus (an HdL Partner Company and current vendor to the county) which identifies addresses and provides contact information for Short-Term Rentals (STR).


The county originally entered into an agreement with HdL for sales, use and transaction tax audit and information and related services on May 23rd 2017 (Original Agreement); then amended the agreement the first time on February 3, 2020 (attachment 2) to extend the term and provide additional related services. The agreement was then amended a second time on November 10, 2020 to include HdL's 'Prime Business License Software System' (attachment 3) to issue and track Business Licenses, Transient Occupancy Tax, and Excise Taxes. This third amendment (attachment 4) will add a service provided by Granicus, an HdL partner company, to systematically identify the addresses and owner's contact information for short-term rentals located in the county's unincorporated areas of the county which are not covered by the voluntary collection agreements currently in place with Airbnb and HomeAway.

The data to be provided by Granicus will interface with the HdL 'Prime' software platform currently in use in the Treasurer-Tax Collector (TTC) department. This data will be used to enforce compliance with county Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) requirements by providing access to property and owner address information, including screenshots, for not easily identifiable short-term rental units.
