Good morning,
I wanted to follow up in regard to Bill 735 taking effect on July 1st. I wanted to see if your online interpretation of this is up to date.
My company installs fences and wants to know if there have been any changes.

Thank you.

Hello Lisa,
The information is still up to date. The Fencing Contractor License will not be required for Charlotte County. However, suppose you still need a license to show your customer, insurance companies, and larger contractor that you are a legitimate contractor yourself. In that case, you can get the Residental, Building, or General license with the State.
Down below, I will provide you with the links to each of the licenses listed above, as well as a link to Charlotte County's response to the House Bill.
