GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Subcontractors who help build the new City Market by the Mesa Mall say they still haven't been paid and now they are filing foreclosure papers against the company.

Melvin Weaver owner of MK Services says several months ago he filed a lien against City Market in hopes of recouping around $100,000 owed to him by the main contractor Mark Young Construction but since nobody has place a bond on that lien, Weaver has since filed foreclosure papers. Weaver says the problem comes from a shady construction company hired by Mark Young. "City Market needs to make sure that Mark Young is paid everybody that did the work. Then if Mark Young has a problem with somebody else in the picture then he needs to go after them," says Weaver

According to local title experts, City Market can still place a bond on the lien that would allow the store to stay open and send the dispute to court. Experts say that process could take months.
