Business License

    As of December 1, 2016 an annual Business License for all home based and non-home based businesses in Pleasant Prairie is required pursuant to Article VII of Chapter 420 in the Village Municipal Code.  This article is not a regulation of occupation but rather to verify locations of active business operations, to obtain emergency contact information in order to notify and provide efficient public safety services to the business, to support economic development activities and to verify compliance with the site and operational zoning regulations of the Village.

    The information gathered from the business license application and the annual renewal is essential to performing the community’s public safety and public works related services. The information obtained from the business license application and annual renewals is also important to the community for the purposes of its overall economic development business attraction and retention strategy insofar as the Village will be able to track and maintain an accurate listing of all active businesses, relevant contact information, employment counts and anticipated employment growth projections on an annual basis.
