Investigators from the District Attorney’s Office released the names of six contractors recently cited for not having licenses.
The contractors were Hugo Arana of Soquel, Joseph Blan of Soquel, Brian Mahoney of Santa Cruz, Brian Smythe of Capitola, Michael Houck of Santa Cruz and Edmund Doyle of Boulder Creek, said Aron Tripp of the District Attorney’s Office.
All the contractors except for Doyle also were cited for not having worker’s compensation insurance, Tripp said. Arana did not have employees, authorities said.
“We’re constantly on the lookout and we do stings through the year,” Tripp said.
The paper today had Douglas Duren included, but he was licensed after all and there is a correction running in Thursday’s paper. Duren did not have workers’ comp but was licensed.
