Once I submit my license what is the City process for approval?

For most businesses, upon submission of a completed application and payment of the related license tax, a business license will be issued immediately. 

For those businesses that are exempt, or engaging in Taxi Services, Alcohol Beverage Sales, Firearm Sales, Cannabis Sales, or Message Services the completed application will be forwarded on to the appropriate departments for code review and clearance prior to acceptance of payment and license issuance. 

After license issuance, the Fire Department will review all completed Hazardous Materials Forms, the Public Works Department will review all completed Wastewater Discharge Applications, and the Planning and Building department will review zoning information.
