Business Licensing Division


A License is usually defined as a “fee to have the right to operate a business”. The City of Rialto issues licenses to help recover the costs of providing City Services that are needed to maintain the appearance, efficiencies, and general condition of the City. For example, fees are collected for Business Licenses to help pay for Code Enforcement, Public Safety Services, Street Maintenance, and other administrative activities. All these services are affected by the addition of a new business.
