Florida has over 400 cities, towns, villages and municipalities with wide-ranging needs and governmental organizations. We have provided a county-by-county listing below for local government websites. New businesses are encouraged to explore these websites for:
- Local business tax receipt, also called an occupational license, required by almost all local governments;
- Building permits, plan reviews and inspections;
- Code compliance and enforcement information;
- Planning and zoning; and
- Community and economic development opportunities.
We found that websites vary widely, but these resources are often found under menus labeled “Departments,” “Services,” “Businesses,” or “Government.” Florida’s Small Business Development Center Network (FLSBDC) is a public/private partnership that offers free professional business consulting services, tools, workshops, and seminars throughout the state to help navigate local requirements.
Some of the following cities and towns do not have websites, but were included for reference. Additionally, some localities are residential communities only and may not have provisions for businesses. In these cases, we recommend contacting the local county office. Some local websites have limited online services as well, so we suggest using their listed contacts for more information. Bolded city names have a population of over 100,000.
We welcome local governments that wish to participate in our website to contact us on our Feedback page.
