HARTFORD.– Timothy Kennedy, a Rocky Hill contractor who violated numerous State laws related to occupational heating and cooling work, has lost his license and has been ordered to pay $35,500 in civil penalties and restitution, Department of Consumer Protection Commissioner Jerry Farrell, Jr. said today.
“Mr. Kennedy was cited by the Connecticut State Heating, Piping, Cooling and Sheet Metal Work Examining Board for 14 violations involving three separate jobs in 2002, 2005 and 2006,” Farrell said.“While neither the Board nor I take pleasure in revoking a person’s license, we are committed to upholding professional standards. Contractors who enter into legal agreements and large financial contracts with homeowners are expected to fulfill their obligations and demonstrate respect for the laws and requirements that govern their occupation.”

According to the Board’s Final Decision and Order, at various points between December 2002 and July 2006, Kennedy broke numerous state laws and regulations by:
• Failing to obtain building permits for work performed on customers’ homes;
• Performing or causing work to be performed in an incompetent or negligent manner by installing faulty equipment;
• Utilizing improperly or unlicensed persons to perform heating and cooling work;
• Making false, misleading and deceptive representation regarding his work to consumers, and by not honoring a service warranty;
• Failing to follow proper building codes;
• Failing to display his license number on an invoice;
• Failing to provide records requested by the Department of Consumer Protection; and
• Failing to respond for one year to a request by a Town Building Official for information.

The Heating and Cooling Board ordered Kennedy to pay a civil penalty of $32,000 and restitution to three former clients in the sum amount of $3,500, and revoked his S-1 unlimited heating-cooling contractor’s license, number 303175 effective immediately. Kennedy’s P-1 unlimited plumbing-piping contractor’s license, number 203802 was suspended by the State Plumbing and Piping Work Examining Board in September 2007.

Right church; wrong pew. There no complaints to quality of work or completion of work. He failed to get his license. He did not steal mony and showed up to do the job. A nolle would be in order with the court appearance. His license was expired.

Having been building inspector in one town I had the pleasure of being threatened by Md Kennedy for not approving his application. The application was filed months after the work had been completed, and the homeowner was not happy with the installation , which was actually done by a subcontractor of Kennedy. The installation was actually dangerous because of a lack of required combustion air. But the politicians in town supported Kennedy and his threats against the town. I left the town service guess Kennedy got is due!!!!!

I can't believe the police would get involved in this. Now they are following the home improvement guy.

You can't seem to get away from the police.

If you are fishing, they harass you for a fishing license.

If you are on a boat, they stop the boat for a safety check.

If you are driving your car, they stop you for seat belt checks.

If you are walking your dog, they try to demand identification.

Whether it is by vehicle, boat, air, train or on foot, you can't get away from them.

They control almost every aspect of everything we do.

Because idiots do not know how to read and write and they are products of the Hartford school system.
The writer who entered that Kennedy entry must have been a fan of Camelot and attracted to the Kennedy legasy and curse. Kewnnedys do not do manual labor.
Don't believe everything you read in the Hartford Courant

Dear Mr. Brubaker (nice nom de plume Mr. Kennedy)! and concerned citizens: Do feel free to check out the DCP press releases on Kennedy at http://www.ct.gov/dcp/cwp/view.asp... Example: JAN08. Caveat Emptor folks. The end game is to jail this crook.

The should have jailed Joe "The Bootlegger" Kennedy Sr.for violation of the Volsted Act. Now we have a nobody wanna be whose best quality in life was riding her pony named Macaroni.
Now with very litte experience she wants to be a Senator from New York replacing Hillary Clinton.
Perhaps she could hire the restoration crook to fix the Kennedy properties.
It is nice to be born with a gold spoon in your mouth and she should learn and appreciate that. Her only qualification is she was a President's daughter
