The Community & Home Improvement division wants hard-working, qualified contractors to submit bids on home improvement projects. Job are available and accessible. Contractors can specify a preferred geographic area. Prepared detailed specifications, contracts, conflict mediation as needed, regular payment guaranteed, and lead-based paint training are included. A qualified contractor must have a state-issued residential builder’s license and required insurance, adhere to current construction codes and guidelines, be reliable and complete projects on-time. Businesses owned by women or minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
