Contractor Licenses

City Contractor License and Tree Contractor License - Please see notes below regarding 2018 Licenses

A contractor license is required to perform work in the city unless the contractor is currently licensed by the State of Minnesota as a plumber or electrician. Please note the general liability insurance requirements have recently been revised by City Council. 

The Certificate of Insurance must carry insurance with a minimum of these liability levels (Roseville City Code, Chapter 307):

General Liability:  Bodily injury liability shall not be less than $500,000 for injuries to any one person, including accidental death, and not less than $1,500,000 aggregate. Property damage liabilities shall not be less than $500,000 for each accident and not less than $1,500,000 aggregate.

The Certificate of Insurance Liability should state:  City of Roseville, 2660 Civic Center Drive, Roseville, MN 55113, as the certificate holder.

Worker's Compensation:  The State requires that sole proprietors or partnerships sign a waiver if they choose not to carry Worker's Compensation insurance. The waiver must be signed by each person involved in a partnership.

The Roseville City Council approved the 2018 Fee Schedule with a reduced rate for City Contractor Licenses. Your license term is one year from the date of license issuance. For example: you apply and pay for your license on February 2, 2018, your license expiration will be February 2, 2019. 

Tree Contractor License

The City of Roseville requires any company that removes or trims trees from public or private property within the city to be registered with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Ask to see their registration or check the MDA licensing webpage to ensure they are registered.

The same general liability insurance requirements pertain to Tree Contractor licenses also. State law requires all companies and persons conducting tree care activities to be on the Tree Care Registry. For questions regarding the registry, call MDA at 651-201-6611.
