WHEELING – Tri-state Exterminating Company is suing the Ohio County Port Authority after it claims the defendant has failed and removed to resolve an outstanding balance of more than $3,000.
Tri-state claims it was providing monthly pest control services for the defendant for many years, according to an Ohio Magistrate Court complaint filed in 2015 and removed to circuit court on Oct. 4.
Brian Vossen, who owns Tri-state, claims he has personally called the defendant to resolve an outstanding balance that the defendant has owed for September 2013 until the filing of the complaint.
Tri-state is seeking damages in the amount of $3,093 with court costs and interest. Tri-state is represented by Mark D. Panepinto.
The defendant is represented by Donald J. Tennant Jr.
On Nov. 12, 2015, the defendant filed an answer to Tri-state’s complaint, alleging that Tri-state did not complete the work for the alleged outstanding balance and that it had paid the plaintiff for all work confirmed to be performed by the plaintiff.
Ohio also claims Tri-state failed to file the case in a timely manner.
Ohio is seeking the dismissal of the complaint.
