To practice business in the City of Iron Mountain, there are some steps you must go through to complete the process.
Before you Begin
First you need to research your business with the State of Michigan to find out what licenses or permits you need for that type of business. Example: a food vendor (hot dog cart etc.) would require a license through the State before you could get a vendor permit from the City. State License Search
Second, research with the City Zoning Director to see if your planned location is zoned for your type of business and if any special use permits or vendor permits are required.
Starting the Business
The first part of the process is to contact the City Zoning Director to see if your chosen location has the proper zoning and allowances for your particular type of business according to the City’s Code of Ordinances. Email Planning
The City does not issue business licenses, however, new businesses must file a Personal Property Statement with the Assessor’s office. Email Assessor
