    If its not required and you go the extra mile and get one, all your competitors who do not are at a disadvantage.

    Be sure and get insurance as well.

    Cordially,

    Down where I am, an occupational license is required and costs $35.00. per year. A very small price to pay to be legal, IMO. I also highly reccomend commerical insurance to protect you and your equipment.

    If you work south of the River you should also have a PG city license.

    Ric, if your referring to the peace river, I do all my work right here in town. I have had some work in Punta Gorda, but not anymore I've condensed my route so I have alot less driving now. I didn't know that, thanks for letting me know. I guess you learn something everyday. My license says Charlotte County, so I assumed it meant Punta Gorda also. Thanks.

    yes PG city has its own License cost $ 50.00 a year. Just a tax stamp thing like the county License. I work 75% BSI 20% PGI and just alittle PC. However my pest contol goes 4 county. Give me a ring and we will have beer. I am the guy who use to run around town in a horse and carriage on saturdays with a bride and groom in the back. Also you may have seen me in Boca Grande I had a horse and carriage business there for Many years until the big "D" Now I live under the north side of the bridge and drive that chrome huffy Spray bike. 629-ANTS 764-YARD
