Contractor Registration

All workers hired to perform services for your property (employees and deliveries not included) must be registered to do work in the Town. If you are hiring a contractor (for example, to do lawn work or make improvements to your home) please ask them to register at Town Hall if they are not currently on file. Occupational registration is designed to ensure workers are properly licensed and insured, which enhances the safety of the community. Registration documents must be submitted annually. All contractors and subcontractors who wish to apply for a building permit must be registered with the Town of Gulf Stream and the Town of Highland Beach.  Failure for any contractor or subcontractor to submit required registration documents will impede permit progress. Non-construction contractors with fewer than four employees may fill out a worker compensation exemption form and submit in lieu of an exemption certificate in accordance to State Law. See here for the waiver.  All documents can be submitted to or delivered to Gulf Stream Town Hall at 100 Sea Road, Gulf Stream, FL 33483.  Requirements Attached – Contractor Registration Form
