Mexico Beach requires a license from every person engaging in business within the City limits (see Ordinance 198 and 348 for details). It is the duty of all officers and agents of all corporations to see that they comply with this requirement. Licenses are in effect from October 1 to September 30 of each year. The City Council may waive the requirement for non-profits, charitable and religious organizations which has their principal place of business in the City. Disabled Veterans are exempt, but limited to one business or occupation. Check the ordinance if you have any questions or contact us for further information.
