How do I apply for a business license?

Business licenses are available at City Hall, located at 18 Main St. Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Complete the one page Business License Application along with the City of Sutter Creek Police Department Business Security Information request. Submit with your payment for either an annual or semi-annual license. If you need assistance, call (209) 267-5647 ext. 229.

FYI… Residential businesses (those businesses operated from a home in residential areas) require a Use Permit reviewed by the Planning Commission. As part of the Business License Application, please check to see that your business is of the type allowed in the zoning or your physical location. If you are developing a vacant parcel from the “ground up”, you will need a Site Plan review through the Planning Commission.

Sutter Creek is a General Law City, which means it is organized in accordance with provisions of the State Government Code.
