Mount Prospect police said people hiring snow removal companies should check them out before signing a contract. They cited the case of an 85-year-old Mount Prospect man on the 1700 block of Tano Lane who paid $200 to a snow removal company Nov. 9 but had not received any service as of Feb. 5. He has tried calling the company, but has not been able to reach anyone; a message says the voice mailbox is full. Police recommend that homeowners contact the Better Business Bureau to check on a company before agreeing to pay for a service.
