Online License Renewals


The Village is providing online renewal and payment for Business, Liquor, Alarm, and Pet Licenses.  The online renewal process is only available for renewals.  All new licensees’ must complete and return all required documents to Village Hall and make the initial payment at that time.  


The Village will mail each licensee their renewal notice.  At this time the license can be renewed and paid for online through the Village's Online License Renewal & Payment System.  Once in the portal the license renewal information must be entered as it appears on the notice from the village.  The portal will prompt the licensee to enter their payment information at this time.  Certain license renewals require additional information be provided.
