City targets delinquent business licenses

Some local businesses were on a list Tuesday to get a visit from Carrollton police officers.

And the news wouldn’t be good.

Starting yesterday, officers will be closing the doors of local businesses for failing to renew their city business licenses. Nineteen local businesses originally were on the list, but eight had paid up by press time Tuesday and two others had notified the city they are no longer in business.

Twenty-one out-of-town businesses will be receiving similar notices.

The list was compiled by Carrollton Clerk/Treasurer Becky Pyles, who requested the suspension of the business licenses at Monday’s City Council meeting.

Council members voted unanimously in favor of serving the notices without further discussion.

“If you want to remain open you have to come get a license today, now, pronto,” Pyles said Monday night.

She stated that all of the delinquent businesses had been sent three notices by June 30. Each was given until 4:30 p.m. Monday, June 14, to pay the license fee. Those who didn’t pay were officially considered delinquent July 1.

Pyles said she understands some of the license holders may already have closed their businesses. However, after receiving the notices, it “would be so nice” to receive a phone call simply telling her so.

The following is an accurate list of the delinquent businesses as of deadline Tuesday.
