In March 2019 Jay Donohue was paid a $22,000 deposit to complete a sewer tap project. 

-After almost 4 months of waiting, and continued follow up from us for status updates, Jay Donohue reported the delays were from the city of Denver

-On 07/22/2019: We took it upon ourselves to contact city of Denver whom I have been in contact with previously about this project, referred me to John Dickson.  In speaking with John, he reported that some plans had been submitted by Malamute Development several weeks/months prior but Denver had requested some minor revisions that until this date had not been rectified.

- Over the next few weeks Malamute Development AKA Jay Donohue  continued with excuses about being too busy to address the changes and inability to manage the engineer.  In his correspondence he was extremely rude and condescending even though our communication was friendly.  We have been patient and understanding even after months of not receiving status or timely follow-ups.  Any status we received had to be solicited by us-he never volunteered an update even though he had collected such a large payment for the job.

- +5 months since the date of the signed agreement and we have not received any progress or work from Malamute Development towards completing the project. Everytime we inquire, Jay is rude and, in our opinion borderline threatening in tone.  Several times Jay says, "I'm busy". Yet if we would have been told it would take over 5 months for him to initiate the work, we would NOT have paid him.

- 8/30/19: We sent an email to cancel the contract and requested return of the deposit paid since no work has been done on our property and no clear plan has been laid out to us and a week later still have no response.  We followed up on 9/2/19 with a text advising to review the email and still no response.  

-At this point we assume he has stolen the money we've paid him and has no intention of completing the work.  We have no other recourse but to file a complaint with Colorado as he is in violation of Colorado laws as a licensed contractor.  After some research we discovered he has been disciplined for violating Colorado laws in the past which resulted in suspension of his license in 2018.

-We would caution consumers when considering Malamute Development services.  Jay has limited reviews online, and a self made website.  He has complaints online about poor treatment of consumers, and even non payment to his workers.  In our opinion he seems to have some unscrupulous business practices including taking money from homeowners and not completing the work he was contracted to do.
