The City of Blue Springs regulates specific types of businesses to maintain the health, safety and general welfare of the community.
The City receives business license applications and begins a review process of the new business, including the inspection of the business location for compliance with zoning and building codes, an inspection by the fire district, and if the business involves the sale or preparation of food, the Jackson County Health Department will also make an inspection of the premises.
The inspection and review process is provided to assure city code compliance and public safety. If a Code correction is required, the license applicant will be notified by the appropriate city department. All corrections must be made before the occupation license can be issued.
A business license application and renewals are also reviewed to track and monitor compliance with sales tax and business personal property registration and collection.
In addition, some types of businesses have specific ordinances that must be reviewed for compliance. A sampling of these businesses, include home based businesses, electrical contractors, mechanical contractors, plumbing contractors, private security operators, massage therapy, peddlers, solicitors, erotic dance establishments, hotels and motels, alcohol sales, esthetician, pawn shops, taxi services, vehicles for hire, ambulance services, gasoline or diesel sales, short term loan services, precious metal dealers and day care facilities.
