Jacobs, Bountiful, of Beehive Building Co. has agreed to a suspension of his license for at least two months, an order said, and until he shows regulators he is financially able to conduct business.Jacobs agreed to the suspension on charges of unprofessional conduct. The order said he made successive withdrawals on a project loan account, failed to pay suppliers and abandoned the project.
- Brundle and Brundle Investment and Construction Inc., West Valley City, has agreed to comply with state building laws and have its qualified contractor take contractor education courses.
The conditions settle unprofessional-conduct charges filed by the division over a project that converted a carport into an enclosed garage. The order said Brundle and Brundle didn't obtain a building permit for the project and failed to properly notch the main beam for the rail of the door opener.
- Douglas Paul, formerly of Cedar City and now living in Riverbend, Calif., was fined $1,000 and ordered to cease contracting until he obtains a license. An order said Paul did not represent himself as a licensed contractor but his customers assumed him to be.
- Timothy Lloyd Nielson, Salt Lake City, was fined $200 and ordered to cease contracting until he obtains a license. Nielson submitted bids to build a chimney and do rock work, a petition against him said. He finished the chimney but not the rock work, and he failed to refund his advanced payment for the rock work, the petition said.
