JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Paragould construction company says they're owed hundreds of thousands of dollars by a couple of Region 8 companies, including the company working on the proposed Hyatt Hotel and Convention Center on the bypass.
KEG Construction filed the lawsuit in Craighead County Circuit Court this week.
KEG Construction named Construction Network Inc., and the Northern Arkansas Hotel and Convention Center, among others, as defendants. They seek to enforce a lien on the property they worked on.
In the lawsuit, KEG claims they contracted with CNI and NAHCC in 2016 to do nearly $800,000 worth of grading, storm drain, curb work and base on the property, located on Browns Lane.
KEG said they did their part up until December when CNI's material default caused them to suspend work.
It goes on to say the NAHCC hasn't paid for all of the work described in the contract, and NAHCC isn't entitled to the work KEG did on the property.
First Community Bank and Naylor Concrete and Steel Erectors have also been named defendants in the civil suit.
The lawsuit was filed in Craighead County Circuit Court on April 5.
