The Ohio Attorney General has released a scam alert for homeowners who are rebuilding after storm damage. Phony contractors may attempt to contact homeowners and collect money without doing repairs. Contractors working in the City of Springfield must be licensed by the city. The City of Springfield advises citizens to contact our Building Regulations Divisions at 937-324-3788 to confirm that a contractor is licensed with the city before moving forward with repairs or paying an invoice.
