A Glen Burnie contractor who used unlicensed workers to install an air-conditioning system has had his license suspended for six months for violating county code.
The county's Department of Inspections and Permits suspended the professional license of John W. Mavis Sr. for six months for each of two violations. The two six-month suspensions will run concurrently, said Robert J. Brown, Quality Care Administrator for the department.
Mr. Brown said a six-month suspension was "a stiff penalty" for a first offense.
Mr. Mavis, a licensed mechanical contractor and officer with American Mechanical Associates Inc., was called before the county's Board of Environmental Systems Examiners Aug. 10, to answer charges that his company installed an air-conditioning system in an Arnold home by illegally using unlicensed workers. In a second case, he was charged with doing mechanical work without the proper permit.
