|PZB’s Contractor Enrollment Countywide|
|The Palm Beach County Planning, Zoning, & Building (PZB) Department is making it easier for construction contractors to do business throughout Palm Beach County.
Currently, contractors must enroll with the county to work in unincorporated areas. They must also enroll with individual municipalities to work in incorporated areas. That’s a lot of time and paperwork, and could also mean a lot of money.
To speed things up, contractors who enroll with Palm Beach County will now have their information available to participating municipalities without having to re-enroll. Member cities have the option of accessing the information through the county’s website or they can employ an automated process to obtain information.
Municipalities are expected to sign on soon. For details, please call the Palm Beach County Contractors Certification Division at 561-233- 5525.
