KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Last week, Newschannel 3 told you how MAVCON Construction, the development company responsible for several projects in downtown Kalamazoo, is being fined by the state.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says MAVCON did not properly remediate or document toxic and known cancer-causing substances inside the Metro Center.

Now, we're learning that MAVCON has subpoenaed the contractors from our story.

We met up with those contractors to discuss the ongoing battle and why they are willing to risk everything to keep fighting.

The first two allegations claim that Schwartz HVac and Midwest Roofing did incomplete and poor work.

Marla Schwartz says the work done by her family business was never questioned until they brought up health concerns.

She told Newschannel 3 that their contract was terminated after they contacted us and we, in turn, contacted MAVCON.

Kevin Goff, of Midwest Roofing, told a similar story.

"I did 99 percent of the project, and they would not pay," he alleges.

Goff further alleged that he was told by the company that their lawyers would bankrupt him before he could get the balance of the money.

MAVCON's suit says both contractors "hatched a scheme" to "defame the Metropolitan Center and MAVCON," which "damaged business relationships," and "incited fear," yet both contractors received settlement offers from MAVCON.

Goff told Newschannel 3 that he had to take the settlement, which he claims was less than half the amount he was owed, or risk losing his assets and his house.

MAVCON's suit also alleges a number of false statements by the contractors.

According to Mike Schwartz, the offer was about 10 percent of what he was owed, and the offer demanded a retraction of all allegations his family made to state agencies.
