What are license monies used for?

These fees help pay for Police and Fire Protection as well as libraries, parks, streets and other public services. 

It is mandated by the Richmond City Code that businesses be licensed. We are currently undertaking a massive project to license those businesses that have not complied with these requirements. Please be a partner with your fellow Esteemed Richmond Businesses and the citizens of Richmond.

If you are licensed and paid in full, we thank you.

If you are NOT licensed or paid in full, please come and see us.
