WINFIELD – A Pennsylvania traffic management company is suing a Putnam County contractor for allegedly failing to pay for services provided on a project in the Mid-Ohio Valley.

Protection Services, Inc., filed suit against Young Builders and Construction, Inc., in Putnam County Circuit Court on July 28. In its complaint, PSI -- a Harrisburg, Pa. business -- alleges Young, located in Nitro, has failed to pay over $20,000 for traffic control devices and equipment for a project in Wirt County.

According to the suit, PSI extended a line of credit to Young on Oct. 9, 2007.

The agreement called for Young to pay on any invoice PSI submitted within 30 days or incur an annual 15 percent service charge, and "pay collection costs and expenses in the event of default," the suit alleges.

Records allegedly show PSI provided traffic signals for Young on a project in Elizabeth from Oct. 9, 2007-July 27, 2009. According to an invoice attached as an exhibit, Young, to date, has paid $77,481.34 toward the total bill of $99,083.96.

Protection Services seeks $21,602.62 plus court costs and interest.

It is represented by Ryan S. Marsteller of the Huntington law firm of Bailes, Craig and Yon.

The case is assigned to Judge Phillip Stowers.
