City says Scott Walker rented home without permit, but Walker says no

Ocean Springs city officials say Scott Walker and his wife, Trinity, rented out the guest cottage at the East Beach home over the spring break weekend, but Scott Walker said Tuesday the visitors were guests, not renters.

Mayor Connie Moran said Monday city officials were notified that as many as “eight or nine” people were staying in the guest cottage on the Walkers’ property over the weekend.

“We issued a warning a few weeks ago (after the Walkers’ home appeared on a short-term rental website) and Tuesday we will issue a violation notice,” Moran said. “If it happens again, they will have to go to court.”…

Tuesday, however, Scott Walker told The Mississippi Press he and his wife played host to four college football players who “were absolutely not paying” to stay in the guest house.
