Once the Zoning is approved, the Town Clerk's office will issue the Business Certificate with the name, owner and address of the business. The fee for a business certificate is $40 (payable in cash, credit card, or check) and the certificate is valid for 4 years.
The Town Clerk's office sends out renewal letters about a month before the business certificate is going to expire for business owners to renew for another 4 years.
A Zoning Interpretation Request is needed to ensure records are up to date. Once approval is received, the Town Clerk's office, will update the certificate. The fee for an amended business certificate is $10.
To Discontinue a Business Certificate
A signature from the business owner is needed to discontinue a business certificate. The business owner should send a letter or come to the Town Clerk's office to discontinue the business. The fee is $5.
