Home based business:
Due to the recent passage by the state of Iowa of House File 2431, an Act relating to the regulation of home-based businesses, the City of Bettendorf can no longer require a Home Occupation license or permit for “no-impact home-based businesses” as defined within the new law.

Residents that want to verify their home occupation/business is considered a no-impact home-based business can voluntarily submit this form for a courtesy review.
