How to add a city endorsement to your existing State license.
After you apply for a new business license through the Department of Revenue or add the City of Clarkston as an endorsement to your existing State license, your license application will be processed and reviewed by the City of Clarkston. An important piece of the business license review process is verifying that the proposed business use is allowed in the zoning district of the business location. If you have questions about whether your proposed business is compatible with the current zoning of the property, please visit the City of Clarkston Building & Planning Page or call (509)758-1662.
