The City of Costa Mesa has recently contracted with HdL Companies to conduct a review of the businesses that are operating in the City.  To operate any business within the City of Costa Mesa, you must first obtain a business license. The purpose of the review is to make certain that all businesses operating in the City have a current business license as required by the City’s Municipal Code.  If you received a letter with an application from HdL Companies we ask that you extend your cooperation to their staff during the review process. You may contact the HdL Business Support at (714) 627-5611  or by email at support@HdLGov.com

If you have a current Costa Mesa business license or believe the HdL notice is an error, please contact HdL business support. We appreciate your cooperation.
