Business Licensing

The Business License Division assists business owners in obtaining their business license as well as a multitude of other services.  We issue permits for various events such as group events, single event permits, garage sales, busker permits, extended operating hours permits and vehicles for hire permits.  This division administers the Business License Ordinance according to the law and enforces it in a reasonable and non-arbitrary manner to all who are subject to this ordinance.
