Contractors filing for a right of way permit in Aspen must provide the City Engineering Department a $2,000 City of Aspen maintenance bond.  The obligation is more complicated and onerous than most local permit bonds.  The surety bond guarantees that the contractor will perform all work contracted for, and repair or replace all defects for a period of two years, and protect and save harmless the City of Aspen, Colorado from all losses and damages to life or property suffered or sustained by any person, firm or corporation, caused by the contractor or his agents or employees in the performance of the work, or as a consequence of any negligence, carelessness, or misconduct in guarding and protecting same, or from any improper or defective equipment or materials used in the work.  This has typically not been an  attractive surety bond to mainstream surety companies because of this extended obligation, however we can help!  Surety One, Inc., national surety leader is a preferred provider of contractor license bonds in all states and localities where they are required. We offer these to experienced and legitimate applicants regardless of credit condition.
