This form is intended as a simplified, standard mechanism for businesses to initiate contact with a municipality concerning their activities within the city. A business license will be required prior to engaging in business. If a business intends to maintain a physical location within the city, there are normally zoning and building code approvals required prior to the issuance of a license. In certain instances, a business may simply be required to register with the city to create a mechanism for the reporting and payment of any tax liabilities. If that is the case, you will be provided materials for that registration process. The completion and submission of this form does not guarantee the approval or subsequent issuance of a license to do business. Any prerequisites for a particular type and location of the business must be satisfied prior to licensing. Should there be any questions concerning the completion of this form or the licensing and/or registration process, please call City Hall at 205-665-2555 to obtain a more detailed explanation.
