  2. Notice to City of Jackson Business and Contractor Licensees

    The City of Jackson Board of Aldermen approved an amendment to Chapter 37 of the Code of Ordinances relative to licenses on Monday, May 3, 2021.  In short, this amendment has reduced the license type categories to seven license types (Bank, Contractor, Manufacturer, Merchant, Painting contractor, Service, and Vendor) and has changed the license period to a calendar year rather than July 1 – June 30.  This adopted amendment has not yet been codified but can be found online here.

    For all current license holders, the business/contractor license now in effect will be automatically extended to December 31, 2021, at no cost to the business/contractor.   Please note, liquor licenses are requirements for any business selling alcohol of any type.  The sale of liquor is subject to separate and distinct state and local laws.  Liquor licensing is not affected by this Code change and can be found in Chapter 5 of the Code of Ordinances.  The liquor license requirements remain the same, and that license period remains as July 1 – June 30.

    License renewals for the 2022 calendar year will be sent out in October of 2021.  As part of the Code change, a business entity only needs to obtain one license.  A 2022 calendar year license will be categorized and issued by the City Clerk’s office and is based on the license type that reflects the main focus of the business operation.  As a reminder, each uniquely-named business entity/operation still requires a separate license. The new license categories will be updated within the City’s software prior to the renewal period.  Your 2022 license will reflect the assigned license type.


    Questions should be directed to Liza Walker, City Clerk-Treasurer, at (573) 243-3568, by fax at (573) 204-8292, or by email to license@jacksonmo.org.
