As of January 1st, 2022 we can no longer issue permits to electrical contractors who do not have a valid state issued license. Counties are no longer permitted to issue licenses and we can only accept a state issued license. Even if a permit is issued today using a Worcester County license, they will not be allowed to continue to work in the new year unless a state license is verified.

Building permit applications involving the repair and/or replacement of any shared egress, MUST BE APPROVED by the Fire Marshal’s Office PRIOR TO THE START OF ANY DEMO.

The final building permit WILL NOT be issued until all of the proper documentation is received and a plan has been set with the Fire Marshal.
