Permits may be issued to:
- Property owners (for work on owner-occupied single-family or otherwise allowed by state law).
- Licensed contractors.
- Certified Agents with a Letter of Authorization signed by the owner.
When a permit is issued, the signature and identity of the applicant must be verified. A California Driver's License, State of California Identification Card, or other positive identification will meet this requirement. Contractors are required to have a current City of Watsonville Business License and current State of California Contractor's License. If employees are to be used, Workers' Compensation Insurance Company and policy number must be supplied.
