Hurricane Nicholas came through and left many homes and businesses with damages from flooding and winds, and in its wake, we can expect cleanup to begin quickly and carry on for several weeks.
Chief Tracy Keele and his staff want to remind everyone that selecting a contractor can be tricky and costly. Many contractors are bonded and insured and those who are not, may not be worth the price cut.
These tips may help you navigate the many pitfalls of hiring contractors and steer you away from scammers and storm chasers who seek to exploit you and others during these difficult events.
The Clear Lake Shores Police Department advocates for reputable, business minded companies and contractors who are here to help. We warn those who might have unscrupulous and criminal intentions to stay away. Our citizens are not to be preyed upon and we will prosecute any individuals or contractors who would exploit our friends and neighbors. No exceptions.
Please contact the Clear Lake Shores Police Department to report any instances of fraud or scammers operating in the area. We’d love to meet and visit with them.
Stay safe friends,
Chief Tracy Keele, Clear Lake Shores Police Department
