Business License Department

The overall mission of the Business License Department is to provide information, solutions, and guidance in acquiring a license. We will accomplish this mission by assisting our customers in understanding compliance with the ordinances, rules, and regulations associated with operating a business.

Our offices are currently closed to the public until further notice due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  We are accepting new and renewal applications through the mail, FedEX or UPS.  An Emergency Declaration has been issued to waive penalties until the local state of emergency has been lifted.  To see the Declaration in its entirety please visit the home page and click on the COVID-19 link provided.
