Some Catt County Businesses Need New License

A new law in Cattaraugus County requires businesses that buy secondhand items directly from the public, or from other businesses, to have a license.

The county adopted the “Regulating the Transfer of Secondhand Articles” law in July, and amended it in December. Businesses may apply for a license with the sheriff’s office starting on Friday.

Businesses in the City of Olean are exempt from the new law because a similar ordinance already exists there.

To find out if your business is required to obtain the Transfer of Secondhand Articles license, or to receive an application, call Detective William Welling at 716-983-2276.
