Civic Announcement: Announcement For Any Business

The Town of Jonesborough has been experiencing a rise in unpermitted businesses. Nearly all business activities within the city limits require approval to operate, whether the activity is mobile, temporary, or permanent. It is your responsibility to contact the town directly to inquire as to whether your business is permitted or not, and if permitted, what are the next steps to the approval process. Town staff are available to take your inquiries and questions about operating a business in the city. Making those inquiries ahead of time will help you establish the business based on the town codes, thus minimizing potential code violations and fines. To find out whether your business requires an approval process to be permitted, call the Building Department at 423-753-1030 or visit us in person at 123 Boone Street.
