TWG Contractors, owned by man arrested in 3 parishes for contractor fraud, gets licenses revoked
BATON ROUGE - The Residential Contractors Subcommittee of the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors revoked three licenses from TWG, LLC. The owner of the company, Michael Simmers, has been arrested several times in at least three different parishes for contractor fraud.
The company's commercial, residential and home improvement licenses were revoked on Wednesday morning.
Simmers' company also faces a fine that is 50 percent of $53, 250, which totals to $26,625. The subcommittee said that if Simmers' faced a less amount, he would not be able to pay homeowners for repair work that was not completed by his company.
Simmers has previously been arrested in East Baton Rouge, Ascension and Livingston parishes.
The Prairieville-based business lost its licenses due to repeated complaints from unsatisfied customers, mostly flood victims, who say Simmers accepted $322,720 for jobs that the company was not properly licensed to do and did not complete.
