MONTICELLO, N.Y. -- The owner of the company that demolished Monticello's old village court on Pleasant Street last fall is now suing the village for damages.
In a handwritten complaint filed in village court last month, Sam Kearney is seeking more than $196,000, plus interest.
He says the village never paid him a $5,000 demolition fee, nor did they pay the bills he submitted for the equipment he rented at the site.
Kearney also claims that Mayor Gordon Jenkins told him several times that the building was asbestos-free prior to the October demolition.
Kearney and five other workers were later arrested for illegal dumping.
Village officials say there was never a contract with Kearney to complete the demolition.
