Contractor Information


The City of Neosho requires all contractors and subcontractors to be licensed by the appropriate trade; they must also have a current city contractor’s license. All new applications must be approved by the building inspector before a license can be issued.

Insurance Requirements

Additional required documentation needed prior to the issuance of a contractor/subcontractor’s license includes:

  • A certificate of insurance in the amount of $25,000 bodily injury minimum, and property damage minimum of $25,000
  • Permit bond in the amount of $10,000 made out to the City of Neosho

Under state law, any construction company with one or more employees is required to have worker’s compensation. Proof of this insurance will be required to be on file with the city prior to the application being approved and the license being issued.


If you live within the corporate city limits of Neosho, the cost of the license is based on your company’s gross sales per year.
