Business Continuity & Support

  1. Business Information
  2. How to Help

The City’s Building Division will be conducting business license inspections on a case by case basis during this period of heightened alert relative to the COVID-19 situation and while the State remains under the stay at home order. Inspections will be conducted only when the business occupancy classification raises concerns for potentially significant life/safety hazards. All other business licenses may be conditionally issued without a building division inspection, which will be deferred to a later date. Please be advised that some building modifications may be necessary after completing this deferred inspection. Should you have any questions, please contact the City’s Chief Building Official at 303-235-2803.
