Caveat emptor

Consumers needing home repairs should make sure the contractor they hire is licensed and reputable. The city of Pinellas Park recommends asking friends and family for references, or checking with the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board, 536-4720; the Pinellas County Office of Consumer Affairs, 530-6200; the Better Business Bureau, 535-5522; the Pinellas Park Chamber of Commerce, 544-4777.

Before donating to an unfamiliar charity call Charles P. Connolly at the Office of Consumer Affairs, 530-6200, to make sure the charity is licensed to solicit in Pinellas County.
