Licensing Information

Business Licensing provides service to the general public, business license applicant and each existing licensee. Our objective is to assist applicants in obtaining the proper business license and to ensure compliance of all businesses with the City's business license ordinances.

Specifically, the business license staff answer inquiries for and about existing licensees, assist applicants in the completion of their application and follow-up on the approval and issuance of license certificates. Written business complaints are also received and evaluated by our Enforcement and Investigations unit.

Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act

On November 7, 2006 Question 5, the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act (NCIAA) was passed by a majority of Nevada voters. The Act was initiated to protect the public from secondhand smoke. The NCIAA became effective December 8, 2006 and prohibits smoking of tobacco products in most public places and indoor places of employment. The Southern Nevada Health District is charged with enforcement of the Act. For more information and answers to frequently asked questions regarding the NCIAA, please visit the Southern Nevada Health District's website.
