A Manor businessman is going to court to recoup what he says is the Manor Volunteer Fire Department's failure to pay him nearly $5,000.

David J. Lauffer, owner of J.E. Fugh Mechanical Services Inc., filed a small-claims case this month against the department with Harrison City District Judge Helen Kistler. A hearing is scheduled for April 24.

Lauffer said fire company leaders twice tasked him with removing and installing the department's kitchen equipment. He said his claim for $4,841 includes the value of storing and insuring the equipment at a warehouse and the labor involved in the job.

Lauffer said the dispute dates back about 16 months.

“It's just gotten to the point of simple economics,” he said. “Enough's enough.”

David Gongaware, the fire company's new president, did not respond to messages requesting comment.
