For purposes of this article, a GENERAL CONTRACTOR is defined as any person or entity that contracts with the owner or tenant of property to build, construct, alter, repair, add to, subtract from, or otherwise improve any building or structure upon the said property, within the city or its jurisdictional area. The term also applies to landlords and property owners performing work on property that they own but do not reside in. The term GENERAL CONTRACTOR shall not include a tradesman licensed by the city who performs work within his or her licensed trade, or any subcontractor performing work under a contract with a licensed general contractor. The five classes of general contractor licenses are as defined in Sec. 8-132 (b).
