Police Warn Business Owners

Three business owners have recently found themselves on the wrong side of the law after police officers discovered that they were in breach of the Business License Act.

Upon inspecting businesses, reports indicate that many were found in breach and the owners were reported.

Those businesses included service stations, liquor stores, hardware stores and electronic stores.

In addition, several street vendors were reported for operating without proper permits.

This has prompted officers to remind the public that it is an offense to operate without a valid license, display a business license conspicuously, operate a business without proper registration with the Department of National Insurance and to operate a business beyond the times stipulated in their licenses where one exists.

Business owners who fail to comply with these rules will be prosecuted and run the risk of losing their license.

The crawfish season officially opened on August 1 and runs through March 31 of next year.

The department of Marine Resources recently extended a warning to fishermen who harvest undersize crawfish.
