The City of Akron recently passed three new pieces of legislation aimed at boosting city coffers by requiring contractors to take additional steps prior to performing work in the city:
- Ordinance No. 412-2016 authorizes the Tax Administrator to accept information from third parties regarding contractor non-compliance with registration and income tax requirements (ORD. NO. 412-2016);
- Ordinance No. 413-2016 requires all building construction contractors to register with the Director of Public Service prior to obtaining a building permit and submit to the Tax Administrator (i) a copy of the building permit, (ii) an estimate of total work hours on the project, (iii) an estimate of the wage of each person employed on the project, and (iv) a list of all subcontractors on the project (ORD. NO. 413-2016); and
- Ordinance No. 414-2016 requires all building construction contractors to register with the Director of Public Services prior to undertaking or performing work in the City of Akron which requires a permit (ORD. NO. 414-2016).
