Business License

The business license operations are handled by Revenue Officer Joanna Seale, under the supervision of the City Clerk's office.  Detailed information on operating a business in Columbiana is available here that will assist potential business owners in what steps are necessary and who to talk to at each step.

Our business license ordinance and application are found here as well, as is the city's lodging tax ordinance.  For any specific questions regarding business licenses or taxes, please contact Joanna Seale at 205-669-5806 or
