The City of Cape Coral is participating in a public workshop to educate residents on how to protect themselves from home repair fraud and scams.
In the wake of Hurricane Ian, unlicensed contractors and scammers may try to prey on you in your time of need, and this workshop will provide helpful insight on how to avoid becoming a victim.
This free workshop, hosted by the National Alliance Against Home Repair Fraud, will be held on Tuesday, December 6, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cape Coral-Lee County Public Library, 921 SW 39th Terrace.
Topics include how to find, hire, work with, and pay contractors, so you don’t get scammed; what should and should not be in your contract; the building permit process; and more helpful information to help you protect yourself from scammers.
City staff from Development Services and Code Enforcement will be in attendance to help educate residents.
