July 2020 Screw Company uses "Construction Lien Collections" to file lien with NYC for ~$5,000...
Lien names the correct contract number but the wrong Contractor. It is also filed over a year since fasteners were supplied. It also notes that the lien is for supports but the screw company does not make supports.
NYC does not notify NYPA until April 2021 of the lien
NYPA informs engineering consultant of lien April 2021
Consultant informs Contractor A of lien April 2021
