Business Licence Fees Reinstated

Business Licence Fees Reinstated

Brooks – During recent budget deliberations, Brooks City Council determined that business license fees will be reinstated, effective immediately, utilizing the previous fee structure.

Business licence fees were temporarily eliminated in 2021 as a proactive response to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. This initiative was aimed at providing crucial support to local businesses during a time of economic uncertainty.

Recognizing the unique circumstances, businesses have been granted an extension to pay their business licence fees until February 29, without incurring any penalty. Typically, invoices are distributed by the beginning of December and are due by December 31.

The City of Brooks remains committed to fostering a business-friendly environment and ensuring the sustained growth of our local economy. The extension period provides businesses with additional time to manage their finances effectively.

Fee Structure

City Resident Business:
New Application: $150 per year
Annual Renewal: $100 per year

County Resident Business:

Weekly: $200 per week
