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.
We needed one avocado removed and one orange tree trimmed and topped. What a super job by West Coast Tree Company. The price was excellent, the work was done precisely as we wanted and the yard was cleaner than when the workers started. Everything was taken away and cleaned up. If you need tree service, do not hesitate to call this company. They deliver! Thanks again......
After a little bit of a scheduling snafu, Joe was quick to come over and re-assess my job with his crew at hand. He offered professional advise regarding my tree, a beautiful but messy jacaranda. Initially I just wanted it out, but after talking it through I just had to have it trimmed down. I'd also been working on a giant hedge myself for about a week and Joe quickly worked that into the estimate. He gave me a fair price. I must say that I was really impressed with his crew. Juan and Merced were amazing! I can't say enough good things about about these two gentlemen! They worked very hard all day in the heat on my yard without complaint and remained open to suggestions about a branch or two. My hedge was reduced to a manageable size and tree looked brand new. The sweetest thing was that I asked if they could keep the dove nest that was perched in between some branches. I thought it was a goner but when I got home the nest was still there! Totally touched my heart! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who needs help in the yard! They cleaned up everything it looks like a brand new yard thank you so much!!
It was a record hot day (110 degrees) and the crew was punctual, professional, polite, thorough, thoughtful and very hard workers. I salute them and the company.
