MANDATA - A contractor is suing the Line Mountain School District for more than quarter of a million dollars, school board members said Tuesday.

At their regular meeting Tuesday, directors voted unanimously to retain McNees, Wallace & Nurick LLC in connection with the claim of The Robert Feaster Corporation, Northumberland.

Rich Roberts, the district's solicitor, said The Robert Feaster Corporation claims the district owes the company approximately $260,000 in payments for the district's most recent building project.

In April 2013, directors voted to execute a contract with The Robert Feaster Corporation for general construction in the amount of $1,335,300.

The project included the seventh- and eighth-grade wing at the junior/senior high school in Mandata, which was expanded to accommodate fifth and sixth grades.

Work completed by other companies brought the total cost of the addition to $3.6 million.

The addition was completed in fall 2013.
