Special Designated License Applications are required to be submitted through the on-line portal.   

Form #108 will no longer be accepted.  Form links for local approval, outdoor areas, and non-profit affidavit are listed below. 


1st Step - Registration:

If you have not registered your license or non-profit organization, this will be your first step. Below are links to register your license or non-profit organization. You will only need to register once. City/County Clerks will not be registering for this site unless they are part of a non-profit organization.

                              **Please make sure to email/fax the form found on the link at the bottom of Step 2.



Please see links below for information to REGISTRATION for Special Designated Licenses through our new portal.   Registration is only once for the new portal.









If registration has been completed and notification has been received from that your license has been activated, you will then be ready to submit future applications. Please do not log onto the portal until you have an application to enter and local approval (as well as any other applicable form) is saved on your computer.


Local Approval:

The approval from your local governing body will require Form #200.  (This form can be completed and given to the Clerk before or after registering).  The top section of this form will be completed by the applicant and given to the Clerk for approval.  When the Clerk has approved the event, the signed copy along with any other forms required will be emailed back to the applicant.  The applicant will then need to have this signed local approval saved on their computer ready for upload when entering the application on the portal. 

If the form is not approved with a signature and date by the Clerk’s office, the application will be rejected.

Non-profits will need to submit Form #201 as a second page after the local approval.  At this time, there is not a location on the portal application for the Non-Profit Form to be uploaded. 

Outdoor diagrams (Form #109) or fence waiver requests (Form #140) are to be saved on your computer and uploaded to your application when entering the measurements on your application.

Entry of Application:

When you are ready to enter your application, please be sure to have your local approval and all forms available for upload to the application.  Please check the SDL calendar to make sure that the application is not late.  Late applications will not be processed. 

You will also need your user name and password.  Enter all fields and make sure all information is entered accurately as this will be the information that will print on your license when approved.  Local approval times and information must match the application.

Below is the link to enter your application:  Please Do Not login until your account is activated by our office.

Please make sure you are clicking the “continue button” when you get to the payment receipt page.  The order will not process if this button is not selected.   You should receive a message “Success” when the order has completed.

After successful completion of your on-line application, an email will be sent from DocuSign.  Please make sure to electronically sign the document at your earliest convenience.  The application cannot be reviewed until the signature has been completed.

The SDL application will be reviewed by the SDL Licensing Division.  After it is approved, the license will be mailed to the Clerk’s Office.  If there would be any questions on the application, we will contact you.  Please make sure that any questions are answered promptly, so the license can be issued.
