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.
Business licenses of any type, including both renewing and new businesses, are $50.
Renewing business license applications and payments must be submitted on or before Wednesday, Jan. 30. All renewals submitted after 4:30 p.m. on January 30 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).

All businesses that move into an existing tenant space are required to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy to legally occupy that space. The Certificate of Occupancy is obtained by going through the permitting process with the Town of Lyons Building Department. There are two permitting options that are available for the business to receive a Certificate of Occupancy: A Change in Use (No Work) permit or a Tenant Finish permit.
Does the business have construction planned for the commercial space.
If you selected 'Yes' and will be doing construction/renovations, please contact the Building Department directly to begin your site plan and permitting process.
A Change in Use (No Work) permit is available when a new business is preparing to move into an existing building/tenant space when NO WORK that requires a permit is being done to that space. The last permitted occupancy type must be the same occupancy type as the new business. The permit has a five-business day review period after it is accepted through the check in process. Building, Planning and Fire review this permit. Once the permit is issued, the Building & Fire Divisions conduct life safety inspections on the property/space. Once all inspections are approved, a Certificate of Occupancy will be issued, and the space can then be occupied.
