Background:

The City Council has struggled to fill vacancies on the Contractor Licensing Review Board (CLRB).  This proposed amendment revises portions of Article 2 and Article 10 of Chapter 4 of the Independence City Code, dissolving the Contractor Licensing Review Board and empowering the Board of Engineering Appeals to review all contested matters pertaining to the approval, issuance, suspension, revocation, renewal, and reinstatement of contractor licenses, including examinations.  Furthermore, this proposed amendment creates qualifications for the members of the Board of Building and Engineering Appeals, requiring a minimum of two (2) licensed contractors (general, building, residential, mechanical, electrical or plumbing) and a minimum of two (2) licensed engineers.  This was added in response to the most recent Insurance Service Office (ISO) review done on the City in which the qualifications of Board members was questioned.
