Application for Licenses

There is no fee for a general business license application or timely renewal.

Regulated licenses such as Door to Door Sales and Street Vending require application and renewal fees. 

Applications for the type of business you wish to pursue are available online from our business license portal. The applicant will be required to answer applicable questions on the application and provide forms of identification including proof of legal residence, and, in some instances, fingerprints (there is a six - eight week processing time), passport pictures, and a background check.

Upon Approval

All new, local applications will be reviewed by the Planning and Building Department prior to issuance. Once your application is approved, you will be notified your license is available for printing from the business license portal.  Your license must be displayed while conducting business.
