What is the purpose of the business license?
The purpose of a business license is to regulate businesses in order to promote improved enforcement of Town, state, federal, or otherwise applicable codes, rules, regulations or laws, at lower public cost, with a higher level of protection of the public. Licensing helps protect the public against threats to public peace, health, safety and welfare, by ensuring compliance with Town ordinances, including those designed to ensure building safety and discourage public disturbances and nuisances.
