St Pete Contractor Forced to Quit and Lay Off Workers
A subcontractor involved in the new 41 story building dubbed ONE St. Petersburg luxury condos says it is owed almost $260,000.
Chris Love, president of Gator Mechanical of Tampa Bay, told the Tampa Bay Times that he had to quit the job and lay off 20 workers earlier this year after his company went unpaid.
We are very disappointed to see business relationships in our community go sour. We look to every business opportunity as a shining example of community and relationship growth. A healthy growing business community is one that is transparent and honest with each other. When a business goes unpaid and its workers get laid off the problem must be addressed. We hope this issue is swiftly resolved and all parties involved are paid.
