The County Department of Business License is temporarily suspending late penalties and fees and other disciplinary actions for local businesses as our community deals with the impacts of the coronavirus.
“We realize the significant and, in many cases, devastating impact this has had on local businesses” County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick said. “We are committed to working with business owners to help them get through these difficult times so we can all get back to business once this is over.”
The County Department of Business License is taking the following steps to mitigate the economic effects on businesses:
- Penalties and late fees will not be assessed on business licenses that become due during April, May or June 2020 (this may be extended);
- The status of the business license will be not be changed to Delinquent status for license fees that become due during April, May or June 2020 (this may be extended);
- Collaborate with business owners to allow payment plans for renewal fees; and
- No disciplinary action for business license fee payments submitted after the due date.
Business owners with questions about these changes should e-mail [email protected].
