How can I pay for my business license application or renewal?
Business license application payments will be collected by HdL. Businesses are encouraged to proceed with payment through HdL online, over the phone, or through the mail.
Can I print an application and submit it to City Hall?
For simplicity and accounting of business licence applications, we ask that business operators or their representative connect directly through HdL. Business license applications received by the City will be forwarded to HdL, which will delay the process of receiving confirmation and issuance of a business license.
Will business operators be required to submit new applications and renewals online through HdL?
Business license processing is now being handled by HdL Software LLC. All applications, whether by mail, online, or over the phone will be handled by HdL. If a business owner or representative comes to City Hall seeking to apply for, pay for, or renew a business license the City will facilitate a connection to HdL.
