Important News About Building & Construction Activity

As of Monday, December 13, 2021, there is a temporary stop on all building and electrical permit applications, unless they are directly related to storm damage repair. All contractors must be licensed.

In the aftermath of last weekend’s devastating tornadoes, protecting the public's health, safety, and welfare by guarding against unreliable contractors is important to the City of Bowling Green. The Bowling Green-Warren County Contractor’s Licensing Board (CLB) furnishes contractor licenses, while providing a method for administration and enforcement.
 
All legitimate contractors are issued an official license certificate printed on yellow paper. Every approved issuance has both unique license and certificate numbers.
 
Before starting any damage repair, the public should ask a contractor to provide documentation with their official yellow license certificate.

The public can verify the contractor license number by:
 
1. Searching the CLB website database for the license number: www.bgky.org/contractorslicensing
 
2. Calling the CLB office to confirm directly at 270-781-3530
 
If a license number cannot be verified with either of these options, the license may be invalid. Please contact Holly Warren with questions, holly.warren@bgky.org
