No. We cannot recommend anyone to you. However, for your convenience we can provide you a list of locally licensed contractors but please know that persons and companies on the list are not required to satisfy any minimum standards of skill, education, or experience. You should exercise due diligence and always request references from your contractor.

Absolutely. You should also request proof of insurance. In the event that your contractor cannot produce a contractor license or proof of insurance please contact the Code Enforcement Office to report the contractor’s name and other information that may be useful for enforcement purposes.

Boundary disputes are personal legal matters and are not within the jurisdiction of the municipality (Note: Unless a municipal boundary is the subject of the problem). You should consult an attorney or your title company to assist you
