How is the issue of local residents using Superchargers that are intended for travelers being addressed. Does the technology allow for Tesla to monitor the users' home address and impose a fee of some sort?

Currently they only generate nastigrams (some erroneously apparently).
Tesla can get your car's whereabouts at any time and knows when you supercharge.

I am not sure what the current state of "how it is being addressed" is.

Check out this topic: Supercharging letter from Tesla 8-13-2015
And this news article: Tesla Sends Out Supercharger Abuse Emails - Model S Owners Not Impressed

Does the technology allow for Tesla to monitor the users' home address
Yes all Model S cars have built-in cellular connection to Tesla. Tesla has real time data of all cars including location, speed, charge level and other data.

and impose a fee of some sort?
This is not expected to happen for current cars. Tesla's chief technology officer JB Straubel said at 1 million cars they might add a payment system. Watch this video at 13:25. Tesla is expected to reach 1 million cars in 2020.
