WENATCHEE — The Chelan County Commission on Tuesday extended its short-term rental moratorium to Aug. 25.

The moratorium will be in effect while a committee appointed by the commission last week works toward an April 23 deadline for proposed short-term rental regulations. The commission could consider a proposal by May 7.

The moratorium makes an exception for Manson Urban Growth Area short-term rentals that had a valid permit in 2020. Those short-term rental owners have a 30-day window to apply for a 2021 permit.
