Contractor Licensing

All general contractors and sub-contractors are required to have a current Warrensburg Business License. To obtain a business license contact Carl Larkerbrink in the Collections Department at 660-747-9131.

Contractors’ licenses will be verified by City staff prior to issuing a building permit.  To become a licensed Plumber or Electrician in Warrensburg, you can either provide Master Plumber or Master Electrician credentials, credentials from another City of equal or greater size, or sit for a licensing exam with our department.

To schedule a test date, please contact Sandi Anstine, Permit Clerk, by email or at 660-747-9135.  Tests are based on the 2011 National Electric Code or 2012 International Plumbing Code, are open book, and take 1 hour to complete.  The exam fee is $65 upon passing the exam.
