BELLEVILLE – A St. Clair County bank is suing a man for allegedly failing to pay promissory notes.
Community First Bancorp Inc. filed the lawsuit Feb. 11 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Matthew D. Howland of of St. Clair County.
According to the complaint, on June 24, 2015, the parties entered into a forbearance agreement relating to payment of the notes but Howland defaulted on the notes.
The sum of $416,068 is due and owing from the defendant, plus accruing interest after Jan. 11, collection costs and attorney fees, the lawsuit says. The complaint says the plaintiff made demand for payment, but the defendant remains in default.
