Washoe County and the Cities of Sparks and Reno, NV Initiate One-Stop Shop for Business License

ARTICLE | Nov 16, 2011

The ability to apply for a business license in the Truckee Meadows just got a bit easier.   Now, business owners can apply for a business license at a single location to conduct business in the cities of Sparks and Reno, or Washoe County.

In an effort to streamline the requirements for a business license, the two cities and Washoe County have collaborated to share and process business license applications to the business community and citizens of the region.  The ability of a business owner to obtain all three local business licenses from a single location provides a high level of customer service to the business community as a whole, ultimately enhancing economic growth and development.

The City of Sparks has issued the first multi-jurisdictional business license, a first step toward a regional program.  JD Handyman, a general handyman business owned by Jose Z Diaz-Martinez, located in Sparks and providing services to businesses and homeowners in Sparks, Reno, and Washoe County became the first multi-jurisdictional business license issued in the Truckee Meadows.

Phase Two will create an on-line delivery system for processing renewal notices and accepting payments.

The third and final phase of the project will allow local businesses to acquire a single business license providing the sale of goods and services throughout the region.

The new business licensing process was sanctioned by the efforts of the elected officials of the cities of Sparks and Reno, and Washoe County that began in spring 2011. Contact Adam Mayberry, 775.353.7894for more information or visit http://cityofsparks.us/.
