Companies settle allegations of lacking licenses

Posted: Updated:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Arizona and Minnesota companies that worked on a railroad construction project in New Mexico will pay fines totaling $150,000 to settle allegations that didn't have necessary state licenses when they bid on the work.

The Albuquerque Journal ( ) reports that the settlement accepted Wednesday by the state Construction Industries Commission resulted from closed-door talks between state officials and representatives of Tempe, Arizona-based Sundt Construction and Burnside, Minnesota-based Ames Construction.

The companies helped build Union Pacific's new rail hub in southern New Mexico. The facility at Santa Teresa opened in April.

Sundt General Counsel Randy Nye says the company is pleased to have the matter behind it and says there was no deliberate intent to avoid obtaining the proper licenses in New Mexico.

The companies previously denied any wrongdoing.
