2018 Business License

  1. Business License Renewals
    In December 2016, the Board of Trustees agreed upon and directed staff to change the 2017 Lyons Business License fee to $50, from $25. Later in 2017, however, it was realized that the Lyons Municipal Code (LMC) had specified $25 as the amount required of applicants seeking a Town of Lyons Business License. Because the fee wasn't changed by ordinance, the $50 fee was realized as unenforceable; thus, the Town converted back to the $25 fee, for the remainder of 2017. To refund the $25 to the businesses that paid $50 in 2017, those businesses will have a $25 credit on their account for 2018 business licenses renewals.

    In addition, because of the postponed timing on the 2018 fee schedule, there is a 45-day grace period from January 1, 2018, before the first penalty fee is imposed. Renewing business license applications and payments must be submitted on or before Wednesday, February 14, 2018, by 4:30 p.m., to avoid a late fee. All renewals submitted after 4:30 p.m. on February 14, 2018 will be issued a penalty of ten percent (10%) of the amount of the license fee, and an additional five percent (5%) of the original fee will be added on the last day of each calendar month (LMC § 6-1-100).

    Other payment forms may be dropped off at Town Hall or mailed (please do not mail cash). For these payment options, please submit an online application, and print & attach a hard copy to your payment.

    New Business Licenses (Non-Renewals)
    Please allow two (2) business days for new business license applications to be processed, before payment can be made. Staff will be in touch once the application is processed; at that time, you may pay with a card over the phone, or with cash or check. Unfortunately, new business license payments are unable to be made online, due to syncing issues with the payment system.

  2. As set forth in the Lyons Town Code, an annual business license is required for all businesses operating in the Town of Lyons. Business licenses expire on December 31 of each year.

    It is the business owner’s responsibility to remember that business licenses must be renewed each January. Failure to renew may result in the revocation of the license as indicated in Section 2-1-10 of the Lyons Town Code.

    Your license will be mailed to you upon completion.
