Agenda Item Summary:
This ordinance is a companion to Ordinance 6104, which eliminates certain plumbing licenses, and Ordinance 6105, which eliminates certain electrical licenses. This ordinance amends the provision concerning contractor’s licenses to eliminate these duplicative licenses. The ordinance also adopts a new license for siding contractors; removes outdated grandfathering provisions; provides that licensees who let their license expire but then renew within one year of expiration do not have to retake any license examination; and aligns the licensing period for electricians with the two-year licensing period of the state. The Building Board of Appeals considered these amendments at several meetings this summer and voted to recommend approval of Ordinance 6106 on August 9, 2016. A public meeting with contractors was held on August 24, 2016.
