Reinstatement of Right-of-Way Licenses

If the contractor license has been expired for more than one year, the license holder must complete a new application and submit supporting documents as required for a new license.

In order to retain an existing license number, reinstatements must be completed in person or by mail, not online. Once reinstated, the contractor's license number will remain the same.

Expiration dates are listed on each license and on the city's licensed contractor search page.
