Business Licenses

Nicole Sanders, Business License Clerk

The Business License process runs concurrent with the Commercial Occupancy process.  Commercial Occupancy Permit applications are available for download from the Permits, Forms, and Licenses page.  Zoning regulations are also reviewed to determine if a business is a permitted or conditional use within the City of Overland.  No person shall locate a business that provides services, manufactures and/or sells any liquor, goods, wares or merchandise at any stand or place occupied for that purpose within the city limits of Overland without first obtaining the proper license to do business in the City of Overland.  Licenses issued are non assignable or transferable, nor pro-rated.  

A Community Fire District Occupancy Permit is required to occupy the place of business.
