On Thursday, July 16, the Arizona Registrar of Contractors revoked the three licenses held between Camelback Pools doing business as Paddock Pools and RIG Constructions doing business as Cameo Pools, both based out of the Phoenix-area.
According to a press release, the revocations follow two orders of summary suspension on licenses assigned to Camelback Pools and RIG Construction and two citations alleging a combined 24 counts of violations of Title 32, Chapter 10 of the Arizona Revised Statutes filed on May 29.
The orders revoking the licenses conclude AZ ROC’s investigations and legal process for 12 complaints, while an additional 60 complaints continue working through the AZ ROC administrative process, stated the release. Of the 60 complaints, Camelback Pools is responsible for 41 of those, while RIG Construction is responsible for 19, according to the release.
“With holes dug and construction materials exposed, it was apparent that Camelback and RIG Construction’s work presented a clear public safety concern while abandoning these pool installations,” stated AZ ROC Director, Jeff Fleetham, in the release. “Though the licenses were revoked, AZ ROC will continue to work as quickly as possible to ensure those who filed complaints will have their cases investigated.”
Individuals who submitted complaints with the AZ ROC, which have been adjudicated, are now available to file a claim with the AZ ROC Residential Contractor’s Recovery Fund, stated the release.
The Fund is available to complainants after a contractor has been found to be in violation of Title 31, Chapter 10 with a maximum payout of up to $30,000 per claim and up to $200,000 per residential license, according to the release.
