CONTRACTORS AT THOMAS FIRE SITES SCRUTINIZED
The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office says investigators from their office and the State of California swept through 44 Thomas Fire disaster sites to make sure the people doing clean up and repair work are in compliance with the law.
The compliance sweep happened a week ago and they contacted 55 business entities working at the 44 sites.
The DA says all but five companies were in compliance.
They say those five were ordered to stop work as a result of violations of contractor license laws or worker’s comp laws.
DA Greg Totten says they’re pleased that the vast majority of companies are operating properly but they will be continually checking to make that the companies are in compliance.
