1 In 5 Businesses In Kankakee, IL Has No City License

Nearly 170 Kankakee businesses apparently are operating without a city-mandated business license, not only withholding badly needed money from the city, but also potentially evading important safety inspections.

Noncompliant businesses, including those exempt from a renewal fee, could face fines ranging from $50 to $500 for each day without a license through adjudication court.
