MOUNDSVILLE - A West Virginia-based contractor is suing the City of Cameron for not paying almost $30,000 on a roofing project.

N.F. Mansuetto and Sons, Inc., filed the lawsuit July 3 in Marshall Circuit Court, seeking $29,250.

"The City has failed to pay the balances… despite repeated demands by Mansuetto for payment of the same," the complaint says.

H. Brann Altmeyer of Wheeling law firm Phillips, Gardill, Kaiser and Altmeyer is representing the plaintiff.

Mansuetto claims it entered into an agreement on Dec. 13, 2002, to re-roof the railroad depot in Cameron, also known as the Cameron Depot Restoration Project.

The original estimate put the project at $60,700. Mansuetto says that was increased by $7,000 on Jan. 2, 2004.

"Mansuetto's contracted portion of the project was completed in March 2004," the complaint says.

It adds that the City of Cameron has failed to pay two invoices totaling $29,250, which is the amount in which Mansuetto demands judgment, along with court costs.

The roofing project was part of Phase II of the Cameron Depot Restoration Project, which was created to beautify the parts of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad that run through Cameron.

Judge John Madden has been assigned the case.
