Steilacoom and Roy are latest BLS partners in county of 900,000 residents
OLYMPIA, Wash. – Feb. 20, 2020 – Pierce County will soon have 20 municipalities linked to the state’s Business Licensing System (BLS), a one-stop shop that allows businesses to register for and renew state and local licenses in one convenient process.
Joining this month are the beachfront community of Steilacoom – Washington’s first town, established in 1854 – and the prairie city of Roy on the east side of Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
Connecting local licensing is especially helpful for regional businesses that submit applications and renewals in a streamlined online process.
“Our plumbing work takes us all around South Sound, sometimes on a moment’s notice,” said Kathy Thaut, owner of At Your Service Plumbing in University Place. “It’s much easier to manage our licenses for cities like Lakewood, DuPont, and Steilacoom using the same portal where we report our state taxes. If we save time there, we have more time to help our customers.”
