Contractors who would like to obtain registration as a water and sewer installer must still contact the Utility Billing Division at 614-342-4440 to apply and obtain their registrations.
Contractors are required to register with the City and provide a copy of their state license prior to being issued an electrical, gas piping, HVAC or plumbing permit for Ohio Building Code related construction (commercial, industrial or residential buildings larger than a three family dwelling). There is a $100 registration fee. Liability insurance is required, minimum amounts of $100,000/$300,000, with the City of Gahanna shown as the “Certificate Holder.”
For contractors constructing decks, sheds, fences, signs, and residential projects, no state license is required. Only certificate of liability insurance and registration are required.
