(A) All building, electrical, plumbing and mechanical and fire suppression contractors performing work in their respective trades in the village must be registered with the village, with the following exceptions:
(1) Contractors registered with another municipality in the state are exempt upon making the proper showing as set forth in division (B) of this section.
(2) Homeowners who are performing work on their own dwellings.
(B) Persons registering as contractors, having a registration renewed, or seeking an exemption from registration because of a registration in another municipality shall fill out an application form furnished by the Building Code Administrator, supply proof of contractors’ general liability and workers compensation insurance, supply, if applicable, proof of registration in another municipality, and pay the Village Treasurer an application fee of $ 20. Every contractor who has received a registration or exemption shall be entitled to renewal thereof upon making application to the Building Code Administrator and paying the fee. All registrations and exemptions shall expire on the last day of December of each year; renewals may be made at any time between November 1 and the last day of December in any year.
(C) Any contractor may have his, her or its registration suspended or revoked by the Building Code Administrator for any misrepresentation in obtaining the registration, for failure to comply with the provisions of the Building Code, or for failure to comply with village ordinances pertaining to open burning of construction wastes. A notice of revocation shall be served personally or by certified mail upon the holder. The notice shall state the time and place of a hearing before the Building Code Board of Appeals and the reason for the contemplated suspension or revocation. The notice shall advise the holder of his, her or its rights to appear at the hearing in person, or in the case of a corporation, by its agent, and to be represented by counsel. The notice shall be served upon the holder at least 15 days prior to the hearing before the Building Code Board of Appeals. Upon finding of due cause, the Building Code Board of Appeals may suspend or revoke the registration. A person whose registration has been revoked may not reapply for a new registration within one year after the revocation. Thereafter, an application to be registered shall be processed in the same manner as an original application. The suspension or revocation of a registration shall entitle the holder to a refund of any part of the fee which has been paid.
(D) If the law is changed to allow the village to require registration of contractors who are registered in other municipalities, this chapter shall be deemed so modified.
