Search Tips

  • 'Business Name' is the name a license is issued to. This generally includes the legal name of the business entity as well as any DBA (doing business as) name. For licenses issued to an individual, this field will be the name of that individual.
  • Check the box for 'wildcard' to search for your search term to appear anywhere in the field of record you have selected.

License Agendas of Approvals

Most licenses issued by the City of Rochester must be approved by the City Council. Each Council meeting, a license agenda is prepared for the Council to review as part of its approval process.
