City claims contractor breached contract with subpar work


By Noddy A. Fernandez | Feb 14, 2019

KEYSER — A municipal corporation is suing a construction company, citing alleged breach of contract.

The City of Keyser filed a complaint in Mineral Circuit Court against Triple C Concrete Construction, LLC and Jason S. Blacka alleging that they breached their duty to perform a project in a workmanlike manner.

According to the complaint, in spring 2017 the defendants were the successful bidders on the City of Keyser's Ditch Project and received $10,000 advance pay for the work to be performed. 

However, the plaintiff claims, the defendants allegedly finished very little of the project and performed in a deficient, unworkmanlike manner and not in conformity with the standard expected of licensed contractors. In addition, after extensive communication and correspondence, the plaintiff mailed the defendants seeking a certain sum that they did not dispute but did not pay. 

The plaintiff holds Triple C Concrete Constriction, LLC and Jason S. Blacka responsible because they allegedly failed to produced resolution on the project and failed to tender any payment whatsoever toward their obligation.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for the principal sum due, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, service fees incurred and any further relief the Court deems meet. It is represented by John Athey of John D. Athey, Attorney at Law in Keyser.
