Nicollet County Sued Over Road Payments 26 Sep 14

An Iowa concrete paving company is suing Nicollet County for allegedly withholding payment for a 2012 road repair project. Flynn Company Incorporated completed a concrete overlay on a 7.2 mile segment of County Road 25, but Flynn says that Nicollet County didn’t hold their end of the contract. Flynn says they are owed $462,000, about 23 percent of the $2.1 million bill. In addition, the company says that the county made untimely and excessive changes that delayed the project and increased costs without compensation. Nicollet County says that Flynn didn’t hold their end of the contract; the county’s allegations include improper composition of concrete and untimely completion of the project among other things. A trial date has been set for August.
