2022 Renewal Message:

The Town of Wellington is in the process of updating Business Licenses for 2022.  We know many of you have reached out regarding renewals and we want to ensure you that renewals have NOT been sent for the year, and there will be no penalties for outdated licenses at this time. 

We are anticipating having this new process up and running by June, 2022.  Again, we want to reiterate that your current license will be honored, and no penalties will be charged for outdated licenses. 

If you have a business that has an urgent need for a current license (in order to apply for State licenses, inspections, etc.), please email licensing@wellingtoncolorado.gov as soon a possible and our staff will be happy to assist you.  We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we work through this transition.
