Business License

The Town Clerk's Office is responsible for issuing various town licenses. Completed applications and associated fees are required for submission on Town Council agendas for approval. All taxes for the business must be current at the time of filing. All licenses must be renewed annually. Please contact the Town Clerk's office at (401) 392-3800 should you require further assistance.

All new businesses are required to obtain a Zoning Use Certificate from the Building and Zoning Official in addition to completing the Business License Application and Refferal Forms.
