Permits & Licenses


We now have E-permits! 

Visit the Permit Application Portal to apply for a permit online. 

You can also obtain a permit by downloading and completing the application, and emailing it to Maria Jimenez. Some permits require you to submit additional documents or obtain additional permits, so read the application carefully.

Anyone applying for a commercial permit must submit both a hard copy and a digital copy. Digital copies can be emailed to Maria Jimenez in the City Inspections Department.


If you have a question about whether you need a license or you need more information about licensing, contact City Hall.
