Details of ethics violation allegations against Lincoln City Mayor Don Williams have been revealed by The Oregonian newspaper. In today’s edition, The Oregonian reports that allegations, made by the city council, claim that Williams relayed confidential information discussed in a council executive session dealing with vacation rentals, to his vacation rental business partner (his wife) and that one of Williams’ large vacation rentals had been used far more often than allowed by city ordinance, based on its location being in a regular neighborhood zone and as reflected in their VRD license. The allegations also contend that Williams repeatedly tried to pressure his fellow councilors, in closed door meetings, to remove the limits on the number of rental nights to avoid fines or even possible revocation of his VRD license based on his substantial rental night overages. To see Williams’ VRD (complete with a 40 seat indoor theater) and a self-guided tour, click here.

Williams is also accused of ethics violations in that by being a VRD owner, he should have excused himself from the executive session meetings since he, by definition, owns several VRDs. The allegations also point out that Williams not only didn’t remove himself from the discussions, he strongly argued for further weakening of regulations of VRDs in Lincoln City, thereby increasing his and his wife’s income from their vacation rental properties.
