County issues alert about phony driveway contractor

St. Louis County has received reports of an individual going door-to-door in the area around Highway 4 (Vermilion Trail) near Biwabik, claiming to be part of an asphalt company working on the county road resurfacing project. This individual reportedly is asking residents if they'd like their driveway redone by his company while they are working in the area.


The company named by this individual is not a contractor for this project, nor is it one that St. Louis County Public Works has worked with in the past.


Residents are reminded to always research and check references before hiring any contractors.
