WAVELAND — A lawsuit against Waveland filed by a contractor who claimed the city owes it $1.36 million for post-Hurricane Katrina cleanup work has been dismissed.
The Sea Coast Echo reports according to paperwork filed in Hancock County Circuit Court, T.C.B. Construction of Poplarville and city agreed to dismiss the suit.
T.C.B. sued the city in 2009 claiming it was owed money from its tree-cutting contract.
T.C.B. was awarded the debris-cleaning contract for Waveland after Katrina in 2005.
In 2006, the city amended its contract with T.C.B. to include hanging and leaning trees and uprooted stumps. The company submitted invoices totaling $3.2 million, but it was only paid $1.85 million.
The city claimed the contract limited T.C.B to “the total value received” from FEMA, which was $1.8 million.
