An Elmore business wants the owners of a senior living center to pay up.

Ehrich Plumbing & Heating Inc. is suing the owners of Elmore Assisted Living & Memory Care Center for $112,275 they still owe for work done at the former YSI Academy building.

A civil suit filed in Faribault County District Court names David Olshansky of Golden Valley, who owns Home Health Care Inc. with his brother Roman.

According to a court complaint, Ehrich Plumbing installed new water lines, furnaces, air conditioning units, floor tiling, plumbing fixtures and did duct work from November 2014 to January 2016.

The complaint says Ehrich Plumbing has agreed to do the work on Olshanky’s promise to pay. So far, he has paid $36,000.

Several notices requesting payment, says the complaint, were mailed out last April.

A court hearing is scheduled to be held March 20 in Blue Earth.

When the Elmore care center opened last May, Olshansky said “phase one” will include 50 assisted-living units for 50 to 75 residents.

Olshansky said the facility would employ 20 to 25 people when they get to full capacity which was expected to be in 12 months.

In addition, “phase two” would be to make the top floors of the facility into senior living apartments.
