Why don't Rehabs pay Bed Tax on Short Term Rentals?

Well it seems the city is allowing these rehab operators to even avoid short term rental
taxes---  that the rest of us must pay if we rent for less than 30 days.  BUT NOT rehabs!  
See the FOUR ads below that were placed on Craigslist by the rehab operator, Sober
Living by the Sea, Inc.  Demand the city enforce current city regulations.  WHY IS THE
CITY ALLOWING REPEATED VIOLATIONS OF LOCAL LAWS, TAXES & ZONING?
