Business Licensing

Lansing Municipal Code requires the registration and licensing of all businesses operating within the Village of Lansing. Prior to issuance, all prospective businesses must meet all zoning requirements and be inspected for code compliance to ensure structural, fire and sanitary safety.

Contact the Planning and Development Department to confirm that the business type is allowed in the proposed location before you finalize your lease or sales contract.

You must notify the Planning Department when there is a relocation or change in ownership of business. Business Licenses are not transferable from one owner to another or from one location to another.

The current business license application fee is $100 and is payable at the time of application. Payment is non-refundable and is accepted via cash or check.
