Key West Code Compliance caught up with an unlicensed company paving a private roadway without a permit this week.
Bjorklund Paving was immediately issued a stop work order, and the property owner of Luani Plaza was cited for conducting work without a permit. He was also instructed to obtain an after the fact permit for the work that had already been completed. The paving company had paved over an existing roadway behind the plaza.
Code officers have been responding to other complaints around the island regarding this company.
“If a contractor calls you and offers a job substantially cheaper than competitors in the area,” said Code Compliance Director Jim Young, “it’s a good idea to ask for their license. And it’s just as important to get the proper permits before conducting work on your property.”
