A lawsuit has been filed against the Henry County commissioners by a Napoleon businessman.
Douglas Pelmear and Horse Power Sales Net Inc. filed the suit in Defiance County Common Pleas Court against the commissioners and a list of others, alleging that paperwork was not properly prepared for a $50,000 revolving loan for his business.
Specifically, the suit claims that on Aug. 14, 2009, Henry County commissioners “caused to prepare and sign a Promissory Note” intending to provide $50,000 in revolving loan money to Horse Power Sales Net. However, the suit states that the note was not signed by Horse Power Sales Net or Pelmear.
The suit asks for a money judgment against the defendants.
Meanwhile, in 2012, the Henry County commissioners filed a lawsuit in Henry County Common Pleas Court to recoup a $50,000 revolving loan from Horse Power Sales Net Inc and Pelmear.
On Tuesday, a writ of execution was filed in Henry County Common Pleas Court as part of the 2012 case ordering the Henry County Sheriff’s Office to seize a 1965 Ford Mustang GT and a 1993 Ford Mustang Special Edition, or any other property titled to Horse Power Sales Net Inc in Napoleon.
