Why a flat rate license fee?
Council views a business license as a permit to undertake business activities in the community and has directed that issuance of licenses and the accompanying enforcement, monitoring and compliance activities be conducted on an at-cost basis.

Administration costs will be the same for every license, regardless of the scale of business activities. The goal of enforcement, compliance, and inspections is to provide a level playing field for all businesses.
