Crackdown in Belvidere Leads to Potential Implementation of Business Licenses

City officials in Belvidere, IL are now considering setting up some sort of business license system, as a way to monitor businesses, after recent search of massage parlors in the city led to 14 arrests.

Mayor Mike Chamberlain said the city doesn’t have a business licensing system because it didn't want to hinder new operations with expenses and fees. Officials now want to consider no-cost licenses. “That gives the city the ability to pull somebody’s business license,” Chamberlain said.
