WILLIAMSON – A Mingo County paving and aggregate company alleges the Mingo Airport Authority breached a more than $3 million contract for a 2009 taxiway and improvement project.
Appalachian Paving & Aggregate (AP&A) LLC filed a complaint in Mingo Circuit Court against the Mingo County Airport Authority alleging breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
According to the complaint, AP&A entered into a contract with the Mingo County Airport Authority in 2009 to prepare a 5,000-foot taxiway and other improvements with a contract price of $3.5 million calculated on unit prices. AP&A alleges that the Airport Authority "through its engineer, improperly required" it to "engage in expensive, time-consuming" work that was unnecessary. It alleges the airport authorities' actions caused delays in the completion of the project.
AP&A seeks monetary relief of $1.4 million and all other just relief. It is represented by Robert Kuenzel II of Kuenzel Law PLLC in Chapmanville.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Miki J. Thompson.
