The Auditor's office is the focal point in the county for issuance of licenses for dogs, kennels, vendors, junk yards and cigarettes.
Vendor licenses authorize businesses to sell tangible property to the public and collect sales tax, a part of which is returned for use on the local level.
Dog licenses comprise the largest number of licenses sold. The annual dog registration is a service designed to benefit the animal, its owner and the community.
