Defaulted business now being sued by bank

Staff writer

A couple who bought property from the city of Marion in 2016 with a plan to operate a business, then defaulted on their lease payments to the city in 2018, are now being sued by Central National Bank.

In a lawsuit filed April 20, the bank seeks $43,478.36 still unpaid on two commercial loans made to John L. Minor and Amy L. Minor, doing business as Central Perma Column, plus interest and costs.

The bank also seeks property used as collateral on the loans as well as the costs of insuring, maintaining, disposing and preserving the collateral.

The Minors signed a lease purchase agreement for property at 828 N. Roosevelt in April 2016 to operate Central Perma Column and Power Track Sliding Door Systems of Kansas.

Two years later, the building was closed and dark. Signs on the door listed phone numbers.

Calls to one number went to a voice mailbox that was full and could not accept messages. Calls to the other number reached a recording that said it was no longer in service.

According to the court’s petition, the Minors now live in Springfield, Missouri.

John Minor’s profile on a social media page claims he owns post frame building company Central Structures, Inc. in Ozark, Missouri, still owns Central Perma Column in Marion, and owns Power Track Sliding Door systems in Nebraska, Kansas, and Colorado.
