Contractors


Each applicant for a business license must file a completed application (available for download below) and pay the applicable fees.  The application must also include a certificate of insurance for each motor vehicle that will be operated within the city naming the applicant as the insured, the city as additional insured, and must include at least a 10-day notice of cancellation clause. The certificates must also state that they cover commercial operations and must extend through the full license period or be immediately renewed to avoid any lapse in coverage during the license period.

Licensed operators doing business in the City will be included in the resource directory for city residents’ convenience when selecting a contractor.
