Contractor Licensing

Contractors who perform work in the Village that require a building permit must be licensed. The Village does not require subcontractors working under the supervision of a licensed contractor to be licensed.

A contractor's license shall entitle the holder thereof to engage in business as a contractor within the Village and to contract for the building, construction, alteration or repairing of any type or size of structure, regardless of the value thereof. A contractor shall assure that all subcontractors and individual tradesmen who perform trade tasks under his or her general or specific direction are included under his or her liability insurance policy or a separate liability insurance policy, and that workers' compensation insurance for all workers required to be so insured is in force throughout the duration of the project or job.
