Each business classification or activity requires a Business Revenue Receipt as per the City Code of Ordinances, Sections 12-26 and 12-27, which require a receipt for the main (primary service) use, and the accessory (secondary services) uses conducted at their business establishment.
Business Review Fees are determined from the Fee Schedule. Community Development staff will review each classification listed on the application and calculate the fees accordingly.
City ordinance also requires a safety inspection prior to an occupational license being issued for new businesses. This ensures that no previous work was done without permits, or that no unsafe conditions exist. See inspections.
