City of Pasco: Beware of Paving/Asphalt Scams

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - The City of Pasco is warning residents and businesses about an increase in paving/asphalt scams happening in the city.

The city says out-of-town paving and asphalt companies are going door-to-door offering "great deals" on paving. Meanwhile, the company is doing another job "just down the street" and has extra materials. 

The city says these schemes can turn into a big bill for the homeowner/business because many of the companies then do a substandard job, leaving the owner with a massive repair bill and City code violations.

If you are in need of paving work, you should check with the City for permitting requirements  and only use companies that are licensed with both the City and the State of Washington.
