    1. Business License Renewal - Change of Use Application

      The following application is for businesses seeking to renew their annual Business License, but have changed/increased the business's use, (i.e. the type of operations) from last year. An example of a chance of use is a business that was licensed and operated as an office last year, but now there's an added retail component. If this applies to your business, please complete this application and include information for both/all uses.

      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 December 31. All renewals submitted after December 31 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).

      Payment information is listed at the end of the application.
