AZ ROC: Yuma-Based Pool Builder’s License Revoked
PHOENIX, Ariz., (May 17, 2021) - On Thursday, May 13, 2021, Arizona Registrar of Contractors (AZ ROC) accepted the decision made by an Administrative Law Judge to revoke the KA-5 Dual Swimming Pool Contractor license (ROC 316303) held by Gomez Pools & Service LLC, a Yuma-based contracting business.
The revocation resulted from a hearing held on April 16, 2021. During the hearing, an Administrative Law Judge found that Gomez Pools & Service LLC failed to deliver on a contract to build a pool at a Tacna, AZ RV Park in October 2019. The project was supposed to take six months, but was still not completed a year later in October 2020, leading the property owner to file a complaint with AZ ROC.
After being notified of the AZ ROC complaint, the company agreed to finish the pool by December 2020, but again failed to deliver. On December 1, 2020, AZ ROC issued a directive ordering Gomez Pools & Service LLC to complete the project by appropriate means, the contractor’s third chance to finish the job. They failed to complete the work by a February 3, 2020 compliance jobsite inspection, leading to the hearing that resulted in the decision to revoke the license.
AZ ROC investigated 13 prior complaints against Gomez Pools & Service LLC since 2018, and while the company resolved most of the complaints, one resulted in prior suspensions of the license.
The revocation goes into effect on June 24, 2021. The company has until June 24, 2021 to appeal the decision.
