Are separate permits required? If so, why?

Yes. Georgia law, O.C.G.A. 43-14, requires all persons contracting or performing for hire any plumbing, electrical, low voltage, heating-air conditioning, or utility work in Georgia to be duly and currently licensed by the Georgia State Construction Industry Licensing Board for that work. 

The purpose of this is to regulate building and construction in the City of McDonough, to provide for the administration and enforcement of the Georgia State Minimum Standard Codes, and to establish procedures for the permitting and inspection of buildings within the City of McDonough. This requirement is also required of homeowners attempting the work themselves.
