Renewal licenses for businesses currently licensed by the City may be renewed for the next license year using the online Business License Renewal portal or through an online form.

Existing businesses with a change in physical location, type of business conducted or change in Federal Employer ID Number require submission of a new General Business Application.

*A Taxpayer ID number is required to renew a license. This may be found on the existing business license or by looking up the number through the City’s Business License Directory.*


Annual renewal notice reminders are mailed every December to the taxpayer mailing address of record.  A new application is required under certain conditions. Choose your preferred method of renewal.


Businesses currently licensed by the city that would like to update their mailing address of record, contact information, or close their existing account must submit an Account Maintenance Form.
