The City of Bayonne reminded pet owners and various business license holders that Saturday, January 31, 2015, is the legal deadline for license renewal. Since the deadline falls on the weekend, when municipal offices are closed, renewals will be accepted without incurring a late fee on Monday, February 2, 2015.
Business licenses due for renewal cover pet shops; laundromats; dry cleaners; food-dispensing trucks; vending machines; restaurants, delicatessens, and other food establishments. These licenses are issued by the Health Division of the Department of Municipal Services.
Under New Jersey law, dogs and cats that receive municipal licenses are required to be immunized against rabies by licensed veterinarians. These pet licenses are issued by the City Clerk’s Office
Current license holders received license renewal mailings. The mailings cited the deadline. After Monday, February 2, 2015, the City Clerk’s Office will assess late fees of $25 per pet, and the Health Division will assess late fees of $50 per business.
Anyone with questions about a pet license should call the City Clerk’s Office at 201-858-6029. For questions about various business licenses, call the Health Division at 201-858-6100.
