The Municipality has enlisted the services of Harmari to facilitate portions of the administration of STA's. Harmari was developed by LTAS Technologies to analyze online classifieds, e-commerce and social media sites to identify pages suspected of fraud or criminal activity. Harmari Tools can be used in investigating auto theft, auto fraud, and curbstoning, criminal investigations, insurance fraud, tax scofflaws, and unlicensed businesses.
Harmari STR helps with Short Term Rental Compliance with Taxcrawler, which helps with identifying and monitoring properties for lodging tax collection, licensing and code compliance.
