Lawsuit: Landscaping Co. Claims It’s Owed $94,350 By Affordable Housing Provider

A landscaping company last week filed a lawsuit that names a New Canaan organization as a defendant, saying it’s owed nearly $100,000 for work done two years ago. New Canaan Neighborhoods Inc.—a nonprofit organization formed in 1980 to provide housing to moderate-income individuals and families—owes Greenwich-based Furanos Landscape LLC $94,350 for salting, snow plowing and landscaping done between December 2013 and November 2014, according to a complaint filed Jan. 25. The civil lawsuit accuses New Canaan Neighborhoods of breach of contract and unjust enrichment. Under the agreement between the two parties—as per the defendant’s agent, Phoenix Corporation—Furanos was to be paid $2,000 per snow plow, $650 per salting and $2,250 per month for landscaping at Canaan Parish, an affordable housing complex on Lakeview Avenue.
