City of Hayden Business Licensing System

After two decades of rapid growth, the City of Hayden has changed from a small rural community into a city of nearly 14,000 people with a wide variety of commercial and industrial business activities. As a result of this growth, there is a need to better understand the City's business base for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to: emergency response, infrastructure needs, enhancing economic development opportunities to attract more high quality jobs, and for other similar purposes. To address this need, the City Council has adopted a business licensing program and businesses are required to be licensed with the City. 

Who this applies to
All persons and entities that are engaged in business activities within Hayden city limits, including those coming inside the city to perform work, sales, or services. The licensing requirement also applies to in-home businesses.
