Judge rules in favor of town in claim that snowplow damaged car

By Stephen Betts | Nov 19, 2019

Appleton — A district court judge ruled in favor of Appleton Tuesday in a small claims case filed against the town by a resident who claimed a snowplow struck and damaged his car.

Judge Patricia Worth rejected Nov. 19 the claim filed in the Knox County court in July by Randall Parr of the Searsmont Road.

Parr said in a written statement to the court that a plow truck for the town struck his vehicle and left without stopping during a snowstorm during the past winter.

The town, however, denied that allegation and said Parr has repeatedly parked his car too close to the road during snowstorms, making it difficult for plow drivers.

He had sought $3,502 for damages to his 2005 Buick Century sedan.
