Registered businesses will become part of the City’s business directory, and will receive emergency alerts as well as notification of business-related events and opportunities. Business Ambassador Lisa Davis notes, “In 2017, registered businesses have attended free business education sessions, participated in promotional events like our city-wide FoodFest Restaurant Week, and received valuable communications about business resources available to help grow their businesses.” Registered businesses are also eligible for the city’s new free Featured Business program, providing them opportunities for co-marketing and promotion and access to tools from and Buxton.

Businesses are reminded that this year’s registration deadline is January 31, 2018. There is NO FEE to register; however, failure to register/renew on time could result in a penalty of $50 per month, up to a maximum of $350. Once registration is complete you will be issued a Retail Business Registration Certificate for display in your business.
