On September 19, 2012 Governor Brown signed into law SB 1186 which adds a state fee of $1 on any applicant for a local business license or renewal. The purpose is to increase disability access and compliance with construction-related accessibility requirements and to develop educational resources for businesses in order to facilitate compliance with federal and state disability laws, as specified. This fee is a state-mandated fee and cannot be waived for any business. This fee applies to all businesses, including home occupations, any outside company doing business within the city limits, and delivery vehicles. Effective January 1, 2018, this fee was increased from $1 to $4, per application and renewal.
