Tourism Boosts the Palm Beach Construction Industry
Everybody’s heading south. Whether it’s vacationers escaping the winter blahs or retirees looking to settle down, Florida is a popular option for sun, sand and surf. It’s the No. 1 choice for retirement in the country and a top vacation spot for the rest of us.
In Palm Beach County, tourism is the No. 1 industry. With around 6.3 million visitors a year, tourism offers over 63,000 jobs in the county. All those people — tourists, locals and retirees — need places to sleep, eat and be entertained. New hotels are springing up, and the housing market is on the upswing as new homes are being built.
Palm Beach County wants to make it easier for contractors to get their job done, while still protecting the public from any possible unlawful acts or damages by contactors. The Construction Industry Licensing Board of Palm Beach County requires a Contractor’s Certification to ensure that contractors comply with state and county regulations, and faithfully perform all conditions of their obligations. A part of this process includes obtaining a minimum $2,000 surety bond.
