Recognizing the financial strain that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have on local businesses, the Folsom City Council unanimously voted on April 13, 2021, to offer a relief waiver to businesses with license fees of $600 or less.

The one-year waiver applies to new business license applications and renewals from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022. Businesses with prior delinquencies must bring their license to current before a waiver can be reviewed for the 2021 year.

The waiver will apply to approximately 4,600 businesses, including retail stores, hair and beauty shops, gyms and fitness centers, restaurants and bars, museums and art galleries, private schools, and home occupations.
