The Board of Selectmen licenses various businesses. Below you will find applications for those licenses. However, certain establishments require additional permitting from other departments, such as, but not limited to, the Board of Health, the Building Inspector, or the Zoning Board of Appeals. To determine what your specific business may need please consult our guide, How to Open a Business in West Bridgewater.  In most cases, businesses also require a Business Certificate, available through the Town Clerk's Office.

All License Applications must have a Worker's Compensation Affidavit attached.
