Contractors recently appeared in federal court over money they say they are owed by a developer who defaulted on a $28 million project to build an office hub in Harrisburg, Pa. Grant regulations require that the developer be bonded, according to this article. One contractor said the city's previous administration knew the developer did not have a performance bond for the project. The contractor also said the developer probably would have been unable to secure a bond. The developer has pleaded guilty to felony charges including money laundering and misusing government funds and could receive as much as 30 years in prison.
