Business friendly policies started

Boulder City is working to make City Hall more user friendly for businesses with some recent initiatives.

According to Communications Manager Lisa LaPlante business licenses and some building permits can now be submitted and paid for online by going to http://bcnv.org/9/How-Do-I. The city is also working to add more online applications for other types of permits.

Inspection results also will be provided in the field, which can save customers time and keep them in the loop during the permit process.

Other changes include having the community development staff simplify the redevelopment agency application process to encourage more business reinvestment.

The city is also hiring economic development coordinator.

“This individual will serve as a liaison between the business community and the city,” said City Manager Al Noyola. “I am optimistic that these steps will be helpful as we keep our economy moving forward.”

Get help if you feel victimized by scammer

Buying a timeshare can be a rip-off. But imagine getting ripped off twice or three times by crooks promising to help you resell your timeshare. The crooks typically ask for money upfront for advertising, title searches and other administrative fees. You may even be told you’ll get your money back if your timeshare isn’t sold in 90 days. According to investment advisers that’s a big, fat lie. You won’t get anything back except a lighter wallet.
