ID City Council Looks For A Way To ID New Businesses

Pocatello, ID City Council considers implementing a general business license as a way to track businesses.

...Pocatello Fire Department Chief David Gates estimate that about 3,000 to 3,500 businesses operate within city limits. “But that’s the hard part — without requiring a (city) business license, we really don’t know for sure,” Gates said. Currently, businesses such as daycare facilities, alcohol sellers and taxi operators need a city license, but there is no requirement or procedure for general business licenses.

The city may be requiring businesses to have a license, but that doesn't mean they're helping the business owners obtain a business license. That's where helpful tools like LicenseSuite and filing assistance come in. Take advantage.
