Persons who wish to conduct a business from their home must obtain approval from the Planning and Zoning Commission and then get a business license from the City Clerk. All applicants must fill out a home occupation application and return it to the Planning Department.

The Planning and Zoning Commission meets the first Wednesday of each month. You must submit their Home Occupation application to the Planning Department at least ten days prior to the meeting date.
