    AG Derek Schmidt: Lawrence roofer ordered to pay $46,000 in restitution, banned from doing business

    LAWRENCE – (December 9, 2016) – A Lawrence roofer has been ordered to repay more than $46,000 to consumers for violating the Kansas Consumer Protection Act, Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

    Aaron Joshua Damm, who did business as Kaw Valley Roofing, has been ordered by Douglas County District Court Judge James McCabria to repay $46,143.70 to eight consumers. The court also prohibited Damm from advertising, soliciting or selling any services, goods or property – and specifically barred him from engaging in door-to-door sales – in Kansas until the restitution is paid in full.

    Schmidt filed suit against Damm in September 2014, alleging violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. In October of this year, the court entered summary judgment in favor of the attorney general. In an order filed this week, the court finalized the remaining provisions of the judgment.

    The court found that Damm committed 25 violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act, including engaging in door-to-door sales but failing to provide consumers with notice of their three-day right to cancel and accepting payments from eight consumers in Douglas, Jefferson, Osage and Shawnee counties without performing any work on their roofs.

    Schmidt reminded consumers to make sure roofing contractors are properly registered with the attorney general’s office, as required by law, before signing any contract or having any work done.  Consumers should request a copy of their roofer’s registration certificate and then should check the attorney general’s consumer protection website at www.InYourCornerKansas.org to confirm that the registration remains active.

    Camp Out In The New Year

    PRATT – Few outdoor activities are as enjoyable as camping, and Kansas state parks take out the guesswork of the best places to go! From deluxe cabins that are as affordable as they are fun, to campsites with hookups that make unwinding and unplugging a breeze, Kansas state parks have it all. Beginning in 2017, park goers can enjoy staying at any of Kansas’ 26 state parks at the following rates:

    Daily Camping Permit – $9.00, plus utilities

    14-day Camping Permit – $112.50

    Annual Camping Permit – $202.50 (if purchased before April 1)

    Annual Camping Permit ­– $252.50 (if purchased on April 1 or after)

    *NEW THIS YEAR: Unconventional Vehicle Permit (golf carts and UTVs) ­– $52.50

    A $5 Daily Vehicle Permit is required for all park visitors and a $3 processing fee is assessed for all overnight stays. Planning on an extended trip, or visiting more than one Kansas state park next year? Purchase a $25.00 Annual Vehicle Permit and enter as many Kansas state parks as often as you like under just one permit. Kansas motor vehicle owners can purchase an annual Kansas State Parks Passport at a discounted rate of $15.50 during their yearly vehicle registration. Simply ask for the Kansas State Park Passport at any motor vehicle registration office, or select the Park Passport check box online.

    To plan your next camping adventure, visit ksoutdoors.com/State-Parks, contact the nearest KDWPT office, or consult the 2016 Kansas State Parks Guide.
