The purpose of a business license is to regulate and license businesses within the corporate limits of Hurricane City, to determine if businesses are operating within applicable laws and ordinances, to maintain a safe environment for the general public, and to assure that zoning, building, and fire codes are enforced.
Obtain a Business License
Obtaining a business license in Hurricane City begins by submitting a Business License Application. This application and any applicable fees can be submitted in person to the City Recorder or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Background release form (required for massage therapy, any business related to firearms, any business dealing with minor children, or entry into a private residence). For seasonal and other temporary uses (fireworks, Christmas tree lot, etc) a temporary use permit must also be obtained. Door-to-door sales, or solicitors, need to fill out a solicitor's application and a background check release form.
