TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The City of Tucson is helping residents get the tools they need to start their own small business. 

The process is actually an easy one, pick up the phone and dial 837-4100, and those new owners could soon be putting up an ‘open for business' sign in their front window.

City officials added this assistance hotline, as part of an economic development incentives and assistance tools for potential business owners.  The ultimate goal of the program is to support growth of new businesses, faster job creation, in addition to strengthening the city's economic base.

Calls can be made Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The phone line is to answer questions and determine the ‘would-be' business owner's needs; as well as to assist them with city processes for licensing, planning and permitting.

Fifty calls have been made to the assistance line since its inception a couple of months ago. 

Again that number is 837-4100.
