In observance of the winter holidays, our offices will be closed Dec. 23rd through Jan. 2nd


The City of Rialto requires that all visitors please wear face masks and take their temperature upon arrival to our public counters, regardless of vaccination status.  We thank you for your cooperation and patience.

A Business License is usually defined as a "fee to have the right to operate a business". The City of Rialto issues licenses to help recover the costs of providing City Services that are needed to maintain the appearance, efficiencies, and general condition of the City. For example, fees are collected for Business Licenses to help pay for Code Enforcement, Public Safety Services, Street Maintenance, and other administrative activities. All these services are affected by the addition of a new business.
