Online Services for Business Licensing

Here you can apply for or renew a business license, request zoning and building code compliance approval for your business, and learn how to request commercial utility services.

Follow these steps (NOTE: Renewing businesses should not create a new account.):
1. New businesses should create a "New Account".
2. Click "New Application".

Use the New Application option to apply for a license for any of the following types of businesses:

    Select Category "Inside City Business" for:
  • New Commercial (or relocation of a commercial-based business)
  • New Home-Based (or relocation of a home-based business)
  • New License-Exempt Organizations (tax-exempt, liquor stores, some banks) (or relocation of a license-exempt organization)

  • Select Category "Outside City Business" for:
  • New Outside-City (Annual)
  • Per-Job/Project (only for some outside-city contractors)
  • One-Time Event (only for some outside-city vendors)

Use the Renewal Application option to renew your business license (after December 31). Per-Job and One-Time Event Licenses should always use the New Application option.

Renewal applications must be received, processed, and paid by 5:00 PM on April 30 to be eligible for any applicable discounts.

Apply for commercial utility services here after completing the license application. In some cases, utilities cannot be established in a tenant's name until the inspections are approved and business license is issued.
