"A letter of intent shall be included with all plumbing permit applications.

If the license holder is not incorporated, the letter must be notarized."

Renovation, Repair & Painting

In April 2010, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) new rule, the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule, requires contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 to be certified by the USEPA and to follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
