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.  NBC 11 News reports 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.  Weaver feels that City Market needs to make sure that the construction company paid everyone that was involved in the project.  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.
