An insurance company that paid a claim to a Danville business that was damaged by sewage has filed a lawsuit against the city.
According to a complaint filed last week in Boyle Circuit Court, Farm Bureau Insurance alleges that the city of Danville failed to properly maintain a sewer line near Danville Christian Bookstore and Music Center.
Farm Bureau paid a claim to the business owners, Harvey and Linda Naylor, and wants to recoup its money from Danville, asking for an unspecified amount of damages.
The city has not yet responded to the allegations in the complaint.
Attorney John D. Bertram of Campbellsville, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Farm Bureau, could not be reached for comment. A phone call Wednesday to Danville Christian Bookstore got a recorded message saying the phone number had been disconnected or was no longer in service.
