Business licenses are valid only for the address on the application. A change in location requires reapplication for licensure. Multiple locations require a separate license for each location. If you have questions relating to the submission of your application, please do not hesitate to contact our office. 

It is the applicant's responsibility to provide a complete application and obtain all applicable city, county, or state code approval requirements. Upon notice from the City that your application is incomplete you will have thirty (30) days to correct any problems and/or provide any missing information or payments. Notice of an incomplete application constitutes a denial of your application by the City. All application fees are nonrefundable. Any denial requires submittal of a new application including payment of all costs and fees. At the City's discretion denial of your application may result in your inability to resubmit an application for up to six months. Any denial may be appealed to the Administrative Law Judge pursuant to applicable procedures in the City Code.

All licenses must be renewed on an annual basis on or before the due date established by the city for that business location. The city established a twice yearly renewal season based on the physical location of the business. Those businesses located east of 200 West (the light rail tracks) shall be licensed from January to January with a due date of January 1st. Those located west of 200 West (the light rail tracks) shall be licensed from August to August with a due date of August 1st.
