Contractor Licensing Fees Waived in Unincorporated Douglas County

The Douglas County Board of County Commissioners has determined that waiving the collection of contractor licensing fees is in the best interest of both the business sector and the citizens of unincorporated Douglas County. Therefore, effective July 1, 2013 the licensing fees for Contractors of all types and classes, as set forth in Sections 116.3 and R116.3 of Resolution No. R-009-061, are hereby waived and shall not be collected by the Chief Building Official until further resolution of the Board of County Commissioners.

The waiver only pertains to fees, all remaining requirements for Contractor’s licenses as set forth in Douglas County Resolution R-009-061. The 2012 International Building Code, 2012 International Residential Code, 2012 International Plumbing Code, 2012 International Mechanical Code, 2012 International Fuel Gas Code, 2009 International Energy Conservation Code, and the 2014 National Electrical Code, shall remain in full force and effect Resolution R-012-110.

General contractors, roofing and mechanical contractors must be licensed with Douglas County. Electrical and Plumbing contractors must be registered with Douglas County by providing proof of Licensing with the State of Colorado.

Contractors are required to submit proof of Workers Compensation Insurance (if applicable) and Business Liability Insurance. Douglas County’s Contractor Licensing process is not intended to be a “Preferred Contractor List”. Douglas County will not recommend contractors, and a contractor license or registration does not guaranty the quality of work beyond meeting minimum insurance requirements.
