JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Siemens Industry, Inc. is being sued over problems with Jackson’s water meters and contract negotiations.

Multiple media outlets report M.A.C. and Associates LLC filed a $37 million lawsuit Tuesday against the engineering company based on a contract of work for the city’s water infrastructure project. .

MAC and Associates says Siemens did not hold up to its full commitment of the project.

The city entered into a contract with Siemens in 2013 to make improvements to the city’s water and sewer system, however MAC says Siemens failed to carry out its part of the contract leaving MAC to suffer financial loss. Close to 200 city workers lost their jobs.

A Siemens representative said the company has so far paid MAC about 92 percent of the $19.3 million contract amount.
