Contractors sue Cedar Rapids for missed payments

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A contractor hired by the City of Cedar Rapids is suing, saying the city is behind on its payments.

Rinderknecht General Contractors worked on the Veterans Memorial Building following the floods of 2008. They say  they finished construction in October of 2013, but the city still owes them more than $1.4 million.

The Cedar Rapids City Council is expected to hire Ahlers and Cooney, P.C., as outside legal council at Tuesday's city council meeting.

A city spokesperson says the city does not comment on pending litigation and would not explain why or even if the city has not completed payments.
