ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The city of Albany took a step to be more business friendly.
Officials streamlined the process to get temporary business licenses for the 2015 Albany State University homecoming week.
To help merchants focus on success, rather than processes, city officials implemented the Temporary Business Application. The one-page application will allow for the process of obtaining an Occupational Tax Certificate to take only an hour.
The Temporary Business Application is available in the Treasury Division at 240 Pine Ave, Suite 150. It is also available for completion online at www.albany.ga.us/tba.
Merchants are encouraged to review the application and the associated rules thoroughly to ensure a successful weekend for business, as well as the city as a whole.
Homecoming has an estimated $4,000,000 impact on the economy. The weekend will offer exposure and revenue possibilities for local businesses.
