Beware of Hiring Fraudulent Repair Companies

City officials are warning residents of a possible scam involving contractors and home repair companies claiming to be hired by the City to perform discounted home repairs.

With recent reports of heavier-than-normal rain expected during the winter months, contractors specializing in roof and window repairs are soliciting city residents more than usual.  However, the City has received numerous reports that some contractors have specified that they have been hired by the City of Pico Rivera to do the work. 

Residents should be aware that the City of Pico Rivera does not contract with or solicit private vendors, and we have not hired a specific vendor to perform any type of home repairs.   Residents who are approached by these vendors claiming to have been hired by the City are encouraged to call City Hall and report the business to City staff. 

Residents who have questions about home repairs should call the City’s Building Division at 562.801.4360.
