Contact City Hall
If you are interested in starting a new business or moving an existing business to Kiowa County, you should first contact City Hall in the town you are considering for the location of your business. Professionals there will be able to help you understand the process for each respective location and help you walk through the steps with clarity and direction.
As a general rule, the Mayor, City Clerk, and/or City Administrator in each town will be able to help you figure out where to start. The process is dependent upon what your needs are as a prospective business owner--financial needs, mentoring needs, property needs, workforce needs, technology needs, etc.
