All commercial businesses in Margate are required to display a Mercantile License. Renewal Applications are mailed annually and Licenses are valid for the Calendar year.
New businesses are required to visit the Zoning Office and complete a Staff Committee Application to determine if Planning Board Action is required prior to opening. The results of the Staff Committee and/or Planning Board will determine the operating conditions for the business and will also instruct the applicant on the procedure to obtain a Mercantile License.
More detailed information is available by phoning the Zoning Officer at 609-822-5438 or the Mercantile Office at 609-822-8053.
