CONTRACTORS - A contractor must have a valid State of Maryland Contractor's license to sign for a Commercial Construction Permit. All Commercial Electrical and Plumbing Permits must be signed by a Maryland Master Electrician or Maryland Master Plumber. If you are a subcontractor that has been granted reciprocity by the State of Maryland, please provide documentation along with your permit.

ELECTRIC, PLUMBING & UTILITY - All plumbing and electrical work conducted within the City of Cumberland requires rough-in and final inspections by an independent inspection agency.

If you are a contractor (e.g. renovator, electrician, HVAC Specialist, plumber, painter, or a maintenance worker) please see EPA information (re: Lead) that may affect you.
