Submitting a New License Application 

Applications for trade and contractor licenses are processed online through the Citizen Access portal. You can submit a new license or a renewal of an existing license directly into this portal. No paper application is required, unless you are unable to use the online system for some reason.

This Guide to Using the Citizen Access portal for license applications will walk you through each step.

Unless otherwise indicated, all license applications must be approved by the City Council before a license can be issued by the City Clerk's Office. All application materials must be in AND approved by city staff before a license application is approved by the City Council. Please plan accordingly, and submit your application in advance to allow time for this review and approval process.

Any paper license applications or other required documents can be submitted by mail or in person to the City Clerk's Office at 201 4th St SE, Room 135, Rochester, MN 55904.
