Contractor Information

In order to perform work in unincorporated Rock Island County, Contractors are required to register with the Rock Island County Zoning and Building Safety Office. The renewal date for registration will be March 1 of each year.

All contractors may download the Contractor Registration Packet (PDF). This will enable Rock Island County to maintain your contact information as well as fulfilling a registration requirement. Proof of liability insurance, a compliance bond, a registration fee and applicable State licensing are also required.

All permits will be created through our permit program. They must be signed by the owner or owner's agent. Additional information is available on the Building Permits page of our site.  Once the project is completed, the permit must be closed out. Make sure to schedule proper inspections and receive a final inspection. Permit applications are available on our downloads page. 

See the tabs below for more details. 

Each contractor shall file with the Office of Zoning and Building Safety a compliance bond, with the form thereof to be furnished by the building inspector, in the amount of ten thousand dollars ($10,000), conditioned upon the faithful performance of all the provisions of this code. This bond is a continuous bond and shall remain in full force and effect until canceled by notice. The surety shall have the right to cancel this bond for future liability upon thirty days' written notice to the Rock Island County Zoning and Building Safety.
