Orting is now among its neighboring cities — Puyallup and Sumner — as a partner in the state business licensing service, which allows local businesses to apply for hundreds of required state and local licenses in one place.

The service connects regional communities and state agency registrations and is among the few systems nationwide that allows businesses to register for licenses in a single transaction. It’s free for all Washington cities, and 16 of the 21 cities in Pierce County are now partners in the service.
