What Licenses Does the City Issue?

The City of Hastings does not issue general “business licenses”.  Instead, the City regulates several business activities through the issuance of licenses.  All license application forms and information are available through the office of the City Clerk and many are available on this website.  Once application materials have been received and any applicable license fee and background investigation fees have been paid, the information is reviewed by City staff for compliance and completeness. 

Once all materials have been reviewed, the appropriate background investigations have been conducted, and the applicable fees have been paid, most applications will then be presented to the City Council for approval. Some licenses are issued administratively.
