New Businesses Coming to Fowler – Every person(s) with the intent to start a new business in the City of Fowler is required to fill out a Business License application with all the information necessary. After submission of the New Business License Application, the form will be first routed to the Planning Department to insure that the location of the intended business is zoned for the nature of the business you plan to conduct. Then the Building Inspector/Code Enforcement Officer will review the application for potential inspections that may need to be conducted at the physical location of the business to insure it is up to code (i.e. ADA compliance and Health and Safety Code compliance). Finally when and if the application is approved the business specific fee is payed. Business Licenses are required to be renewed every Calendar Year and the fee is not pro-rated.
