Calumet County has lost an appeal seeking to have the town of Harrison remove snow from a sidewalk on county-owned land along a county trunk highway.
Calumet County sued Harrison, after the town refused to pay for snow removal on the sidewalk. A circuit court judge dismissed the suit, so the county appealed.
In a decision released Wednesday, the appeals court again ruled against Calumet County.
"Here, it is undisputed that the sidewalk is located upon county-owned land and adjacent to a county trunk highway. The County has identified no facts in the record from which a reasonable jury could conclude that this sidewalk belongs to or is possessed by the Town... Absent such a showing, Wis. Stat. § 66.0907(5) is inapplicable to this sidewalk, and thus the Town has no responsibility under that provision for the removal of snow and ice on it," the court wrote.
The sidewalk in question is along County KK between Coop Road and County N, according to Harrison administrator Travis Parish.
