Who needs a contractor license bond in Eden Prairie, MN?

The City of Eden Prairie doesn’t license or regulate businesses. The city government directs those seeking state or county licenses to the Minnesota Small Business Assistance Office at 651-556-8425. However, any contractor disturbing or altering at least 100 cubic yards of land must obtain a Land Alteration Permit. This includes the following activities: 

  • Excavating
  • Grading
  • Scraping
  • Clearing and grinding of tree stumps

To be approved for this permit, contractors must submit a city-approved bond, letter of credit, or cash deposit in the amount of 125% of the estimated cost of site grading. If you post a bond, you’ll pay a small percentage of the required bond amount – called a premium. ZipBonds can often issue many contractor bonds quickly for as low as $100.

How does a contractor license bond work?

When obtaining this bond, the principal (contractor) enters into an agreement with the obligee (City of Eden Prairie) and the surety company. A contractor license bond guarantees the bonded contractor complies with applicable licensing and permit laws. If they don’t, any parties that suffer as a result can file a claim against the bond for compensation. The surety company may initially cover any damages incurred, but the principal must later repay them in full.
