||How to Obtain Or Renew A Contractor's License|
A list of license and bond requirements, which vary by the type of license desired, should be obtained from the Development Services Assistant at the counter in the lower level of city hall.
- Building contractor licenses require a completed and notarized application, three letters of reference, proof of office telephone and address, partnership agreement or articles of incorporation, performance bond, and fee. The bond value and fee varies by class of license.
- Electrical licenses require proof of passing grade on test within the past five years, a completed contractorís information sheet, copy of driverís license, performance bond, and fee. The fee varies by the class of electrician.
- The City does not issue plumbing and mechanical licenses, but must have current information on file, including a copy of the current State license, a completed contractorís information sheet, copy of driverís license, and proof of insurance required by the State. No bond or fee is required.
When all items have been submitted and approved, the Development Services Assistant prepares the license, while the applicant pays the required fee at the cashierís window in the main lobby.
The applicant is given the license card upon presentation of the receipt to the Development Services Assistant showing that the fee is paid.
Building and electrical contractor licenses, and plumbing and mechanical contractor information, must be renewed/updated annually by December 31. The renewal requirements and fees are listed on the same sheet as the requirements for new applications.
