If I have a Contractor License why would I also need a Municipal Contractor License?

The Contractor License is issued through the Building Division of the Community Development Department and is for work on private property, generally for building construction. The Municipal Contractor License is issued through the Public Works Department and is required to perform construction in street right of way. The City’s right of way/infrastructure work has different standards/requirements than codes followed for building construction. These two licenses require different areas of knowledge for construction. The Municipal Contractor License also requires a bond in addition to liability and workers compensation insurance. These licenses and requirements help to assure that the contractor is qualified to perform the different types of work and comply with the City codes/standards and specifications/requirements for work in the COWR.
