anyone run into this?

My son in-law was at a property doing a flat rate job (debris, lawn, sales clean).
Codes enforcement stopped by and informed my son in-law that were suppose to have a occupational license to due trash outs in there town! He just gave us a warning , the fee for license was $100 a year! I do not do a lot of work in this town maybe 2 or 3 a year!


anyone else run in to this? if all the town started doing this and enforcing it ! it would put a hurting on me!

Not sure about Kentucky law but this would be a first for me,sounds like a Code Enforcement agent was trying to justify his job..a license to do a trashout???

kind of what I was thinking, but with all the there funds being reduced by slow economy! I wouldn`t put it past these smaller towns to try doing this!

Kind of what happened to me once. We are licensed by the state as a garbage company. We were doing a cleanout and the inspector showed up and said we were not licensed to remove garbage (permits affixed to the truck).
After about 15 minutes of going around I told him to have his boss come down. When he showed up I showed him our license and he pulled the guy to the side. Comes back with "ya we'll let you do it this time". Saw the same guy a couple of weeks later and all he did was wave.
Sometimes it is just a case of them not even knowing the law. lol

I havent had that problem in louisville but I wouldnt doubt it with they way kentucky is getting with their enforcements. Some of these code enforcers have way to much time on their hands. I had to move to the outskirts of the city cause I was violating residential codes by operating a commercial business in a residential community. I had to pay fines til I decided to finally find a different house with enough acreage I could avoid them.

Towns in South Carolina i have to pay permits to work.

Hilton Head
Charleston
Forest Aces
Myrtle Beach
Simpsonville
Anderson
Lake City
Irmo
Great falls
Gaston
City of Greenville

Thats just off the top of my head,some of my guys trucks that cover a large area have permit stickers covering have of their back windows.

2300.00 i spend on getting permits last yr...yep just did my taxes.They are tax deductible tho.

The fines can be vary steep and they can ban you from working in their town for ever too.As times get tougher look for more small towns to institute the vary same policy.Welcome to the normal.

wait till DOT takes a bit out your ass! Happen to me about three years ago! I now run dot numbers and have a solid waste license !just a money grab and pisses me off when I see some of the vendor in my area pulling 16' trailer with a small truck! I had enough since to have the right equipment to be safe!

Make you just love the flat rate and low pay jobs now days! I`m sure they let you charge them for these permits!

Technically, if you are hauling garbage and debris and billing for it, many areas require you to be licensed in waste hauling at a minimum, even in th e podunks of KY. The guy with the F150 and 16' landscape trailer is hidden fruit the government, for the most part, hasn't gotten around to yet.

It would be best if you stop the work, contact your client, add a CO to your Invoice an ask if they need to pay you for the additonal charges that would be incurred. When they ask you why you don;t know the rules an regs...Ask them why they didn't inform you about them. Their the GC and should know the Ordinances and Lawas in the area's they cover.
