Fraudulent bills for fire debris removal have been reported by property owners in Mendocino County who are participating in the state-sponsored fire debris removal program.
While no instances have been reported in Sonoma County, both the County of Sonoma and the City of Santa Rosa want residents to be aware of the potential scam. If you receive a notice or bill associated with debris removal, DO NOT pay it, and please notify the District Attorney right away by calling (707) 565-5317.
The County of Sonoma and City of Santa Rosa will not send any insurance reimbursement notifications to property owners who participated in the state-sponsored debris removal program until the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has completed the debris removal process in Sonoma County. A press release will be sent our notifying property owners of the process once it begins in Sonoma County
