Any person wishing to operate a Home Occupation must make application for a Home Occupation Permit. A Home Occupation permit application can be picked up at Maquoketa City Hall or can be downloaded from our download center in the menu at the top of the page. After an application is submitted, a public hearing must be held. The City will publish notice of the date, time, place and purpose of the hearing. The publication shall appear in the newspaper selected for official notices not less than five days before and not more than ten days before the date of the hearing.
