Business Licensing

A valid Vernal City business license is required for all businesses that are located within the Vernal City corporation limits. The definition of business includes every craft, occupation, profession or activity engaged in the purpose of gain or economic profit. Our regulations are found in Section 5 of the  Municipal Code.

The purpose of a business license is to regulate and license businesses within the corporate limits of Vernal City; to determine if businesses are operating within applicable laws and ordinances; to maintain a safe environment for the general public; and to assure that zoning, building, and fire codes are enforced.
