If you conduct any business within City limits, you must obtain a City business license. Even if your business office is located elsewhere and you only do business occasionally in Liberal, you still need a City business license.
Businesses having more than 1 location of business operation must register a separate business license for each location within the City limits.
Benefit of a Business License Program
Having current and relevant information about local business helps fuel economic development in the City. This includes the ability to attract more high quality, good paying jobs. That economic growth is good for everyone including existing residents, new residents, and business in general.

The most effective way for a City to gather information about businesses is through a business license program. For Liberal, the time for such a program is now.
