Company seeks payment from city of Texarkana, Arkansas

Posted: Updated:
TEXARKANA, Ark. -

Legal woes continue to loom over a Texarkana development facing multiple liens.
    
The largest lien filed was last year for more than $1 million.
    
It was filed by EBCO General Contractors.  
    
Now a sub-contractor says they could soon file a lien against the city for their part in the project.

Artex Electric is one of the sub-contractors seeking payment for work done on the Arkansas Convention Center and Hotel.

Co-owner David Peavy says they already filed a lien against Texarkana Hotels LLC owned by Dr. Hiren Patel for unpaid bills.  

Now they're seeking protection for unpaid work done on the area surrounding the convention center.

Peavy says that city-owned property contains lighting his company installed.

He asked the board how he could get those bills paid.  

"They basically said we can't talk to you about that and told me to get legal counsel," said Peavy.

The company has given the city a notice of a lien that will be filed in ten days.

More than $1.4 million dollars has been filed against the convention center to date.

Artex Electric says their bill is $106,000.

The city invested money in the Convention Center and the Holiday Springs Water Park.

The city also owns property surrounding both buildings.

Peavy says they want the projects to be successful, but they'd also like to be paid for their work.

"They do have a responsibility here, said Peavy. "I don't understand their position of why they would say they're not."

City officials say their waiting for a response from the city attorney on how to address the legal matter.

    We've been told by many veterans that they receive quality care at the V.A. hospital in Shreveport. But for some getting an appointment to see their caregivers is the challenge.

We’ve uncovered concerns, however, over how their numbers look so good - while patients are still waiting to be seen.“Certainly from my viewpoint here, as a veteran, as a physician, the c...
