Before construction professionals can begin rebuilding structures in Joplin, they are legally required to meet local contractor licensing standards that include providing Joplin contractor bonds. The city of Joplin requires individual contractors and contracting firms to provide a $10,000 general contractor license bond before contracting any projects in the city.
The tornado that swept through Joplin on May 22 flattened about one-third of the 49,000 person city and destroyed an estimated 8,000 buildings. Officials have estimated that rebuilding Joplin could cost up to $3 billion, and local contractors are ready to offer their services.
