State licensing regulators are petitioning for a restraining order against an unlicensed contractor who received $720 in advance to do concrete work and never completed the job, a petition said.

Mark Leonard Dixon, Salt Lake City, submitted a bid for $1,440 for concrete work at a West Jordan residence. He received half the amount as a down payment and did some preparatory work at the site, but he didn't return to complete the job, the petition said.The state Division of Occupational and Professional licensing accuses Dixon of contracting without a license and seeks an order prohibiting him from continuing construction work and a fine of up to $1,000.
