Falls subcontractors seek answers, payment from village

May 21, 2012

Seven subcontractors who worked on the Radisson Hotel in Menomonee Falls sought answers from the Village Board on Monday night about funds they say have yet to be paid to them for their work on the project.

This is the second board meeting in a row subcontractors spoke during the public comment portion of the meeting asking for answers.

"We're hoping to implore the village to sit down with us in a forum," said General Manager Barry Bloom of Assured Power, a company that worked on the Radisson. "We're trying to get answers."

The village provided a $17.65 million loan to finance the hotel's development. Village Manager Mark Fitzgerald and the village attorney said they could not comment on the issue because they are in the middle of litigation. They would not say who the other party in the litigation is.

Bloom said he and the fellow subcontractors for the hotel project were told by village representatives that they could not discuss payment of retained funds because of the litigation. They are also unsure what the litigation entails.
