Byram officials warn residents about contractors not properly licensed in the area

BYRAM, Miss. (WJTV) — Byram’s Public Works Director is asking residents to be aware of contractors that are not properly licensed in the City of Byram.

The warning was posted on the Byram Police Department’s Facebook page.

Cohn Livingston said the city requires contractors to meet bonding and credit requirements to obtain business licenses.

Officials said there are roofing contractors that are not properly licensed that are making their way through the city.

City Officials said contractors are licensed to protect the residents in the event someone is not satisfied with the work a contractor does. Public Works said the City can’t help residents get out of a contract or force the contractor to complete the work to a resident’s satisfaction if an agreement is signed with one of these contractors.

Residents are asked to request to see the contractor’s business license that has been issued from the City of Byram.

If they do not have a license contact the Byram Police Department at (601) 372-2327.
