Feb 3rd I hired a contractor to install a sewage ejector pit

Feb 3rd I hired a contractor to install a sewage ejector pit in my basement because the City of Aurora in Colorado wanted to fine me $2400 for having my bathroom plumbed to an emergency drain line and not the main sewage line located five feet above the basement floor. The project needed to be done in a month or the City was going to fine me $2400. I issues getting the contractor to even start work after giving him nearly half the money down. Some of his reasoning was not able to find a plumber with a good standing license to himself being in the hospital due to a mild heart attack. At any rate the deadline passed and the City decided to me another 30 day extension because I rushed to get a Home Owners permit the day before because that was not even pulled yet. Since stating the he was in the hospital I have not heard from him yet and do not wish to risk the next 30 days relying on him to start and even finish the work. I want another contractor. What are my options?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I did not stipulate the 30 day requirement in the contract. It was verbalized.
