Having current and relevant information about local businesses helps fuel economic development in the City - including the ability to attract more high quality, good paying jobs. That economic growth is good for everyone - existing residents, new residents, and business in general. Gathering information about who’s doing business in Elk Grove and where is also an important public safety and planning tool. It helps the planning department consider new zoning, and helps the police and fire departments address potential issues in advance.
The most effective way for a City to gather information about businesses is through a business license program.
As of February 1, 2006, most businesses in Elk Grove will need to apply for a business license and pay an application fee.
The fee has been set at an amount that will just cover operation of the program, the process has been made as easy as possible for
business owners – understanding the time constraints that limit so many business owners.
A business license is issued without verification that the licensee is subject to or exempt from licensing by the state, county, federal, or any other governmental agency.
