Waitsburg considers waiving business license fees

Waitsburg, WA

WAITSBURG — The City Council on Tuesday, in an effort to spur business growth, will consider waiving licensing fees for the next year for new businesses.

Waitsburg’s current city code requires new businesses to register with the city and pay a $50 fee. A resolution before City Council would temporarily remove the fee requirement until Feb. 6 of next year.

For a business to be considered “new” under this proposed waiver, it must have not operated within the city in the last 12 months.

New businesses would still have to register with the city and pay any other fees associated with their operational activities, and annual renewal fees would remain in effect for existing businesses.
