From the Office of the License Collector

Today, the President of the United States declared the recent COVID-19 outbreak a National Emergency. This follows Thursday’s announcement from the City of St. Louis declaring COVID-19 a Public Health Emergency, and prohibiting events exceeding 1,000 attendees in the City of St. Louis to limit the potential exposure. Prior to this announcement, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, leading to cancellations of major events globally, including various parades, concerts & sporting events.

Due to an abundance of profound caution & concerns for our residents, especially our seniors & immuno-compromised residents who are most vulnerable to COVID-19, we are encouraging our taxpayers to please, if possible, conduct all official License Collector Business via our online portal. Our office allows for residents to apply for a business license, renew a license, pay fees, and search for licensed businesses online. If you have access to broadband, we strongly recommend utilization of our services via our online capabilities. 

Should your circumstances require you to come to our office, we have a hand sanitizer dispenser in our lobby. We encourage everyone to sanitize once you enter and exit our office after official business is concluded. 

We thank you for assisting us in keeping our shared community as safe & healthy as possible. If you have additional questions or concerns, additional resources can be found below:
