TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - More than two dozen contractors have been cited by New Jersey consumer affairs officials as part of an ongoing crackdown.

The state is seeking more than $250,000 overall in civil penalties and consumer restitution from the 26 contractors. The notices of violations were made public Wednesday.

The restitution being sought ranges from $200 to $27,400. That represents the amounts allegedly owed to consumers due to the performance of shoddy work, or the failure to start and/or finish work for which consumers had pre-paid.

All 26 contractors were also cited for various violations of the state’s Contractors’ Registration Act.

Sixteen were cited for soliciting despite not being registered. Others were cited for other violations, such as failure to provide consumers with detailed, written contracts for work costing more than $500.
