Employer Reporting

City license must be approved by the city before business may begin in the City of Fort Myers, in accordance with the city’s Land Use, Building and Fire codes and ordinances. 

Every year you will need to provide proof of insurance to obtain permits.  Make it a habit to keep your insurance information on hand to ensure no delays in the permitting process.
