Sparks to penalize late renewal of licenses
The Sparks City Council last week approved a schedule of penalties for businesses that fail to renew their business licenses.
Licensed businesses will have a 30-day grace period to renew their licenses.
After the grace period, a penalty of 25 percent of the delinquent amount will be charged on licenses 31-60 days past due.
A 50 percent penalty will be charged on licenses 61-90 days past due, a 75 percent penalty will be charged on licenses 91-120 days past due and a 100 percent penalty will be charged on renewals that are 121-150 days past due.
Concerned that a spate of COVID-19-related lawsuits could bankrupt businesses, members of the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce implored the state’s congressional delegation during the chamber’s annual D.C. retreat to pass a federal liability protection measure.
