Miami County Code Services administers a contractor licensing program which requires many building trades contractors, as well as onsite wastewater installers, designers and septic pumper/haulers, to possess a license to perform work in the county. The program covers all of the unincorporated area of Miami County. A Miami County contractor license is also accepted by the cities of Fontana, Louisburg and Spring Hill. The city of Osawatomie requires a contractor to possess a Miami County contractor license as a condition of obtaining a city contractor registration. A contractor license is generally required to obtain a permit and perform work for any construction project, with an exception allowing the owner of a single family or agricultural property who personally occupies the property to obtain permits and perform their own construction work.
