With the weather warming up, Penn Yan Police would like to remind residents to be on the lookout for contractor/driveway sealing type scams.
Police warn these types of scams often start with a knock on the door and someone offering to do work on your house, or to seal your driveway with materials left over from a “job nearby.” Often one price is quoted up front, then drastically raised once the work is completed, or the work is sub-standard. Police remind residents to always check references prior to agreeing to any work. People soliciting door-to-door in Penn Yan are required to have a permit to do so.
If residents have any issues or concerns, they can call Penn Yan Police at 315-536-4426
