AGRiMED

A second subcontractor involved in the construction of AGRiMED Industries marijuana growing facility in Cumberland Township has filed a mechanic’s lien with the Greene County Court seeking $63,756 in payments for work it completed on the project.

City Plumbing and Heating Inc. of Morgantown, W.Va., is the third company to file mechanic’s liens seeking payment for work on the growing facility, which received state Department of Health approval in February to begin growing marijuana for the state’s medical marijuana program.

The lien was filed Friday by City Plumbing and Heating against Greene Energy Resources Recovery LLC, Cumberland Property Leasing LLC and AGRiMED Industries of Pa. LLC.

Accelerated Construction Services LLC of Morgantown, W.Va., the project’s general contractor, earlier filed a lien against the companies seeking $693,831 in payments; Advanced Masonry Inc. of Carmichaels, a contractor and subcontractor, also filed a lien claiming it is owed $204,236.

An Accelerated Construction official later noted the company’s claim was only against Cumberland Property Leasing and AGRiMED had paid it for its portion of the work done.

Advanced Masonry, however, maintained in its filing that all the three companies are affiliated. Cumberland Property owns the building, Greene Energy owns the premises, or land, and AGRiMED is the building “tenant and/or co-owner,” Advanced Masonry said.
