On March 13, 2020 the City of Independence entered a State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Since then, several steps have been taken to assist business owners in our community. Below we have highlight some of the changes and provided resources that may be helpful.
At the beginning of the State of Emergency, the City began the process of shifting as many services online as possible. The Community Development Department updated the business licensing section to make it more user friendly, streamlined review processes and updated paper forms to make them easier to use.
