If you wish to file a claim against the city, you must comply with section 893.80, Wisconsin Statutes. Each claim is individually reviewed by the Claims Committee to determine whether the city is liable for the damages claimed. The city has 120 days from the date you submit your claim to allow or disallow it; please be aware that the Claims Committee researches each claim and obtains information from city departments, so it may take some time to gather all the information necessary to respond.
Please note that the City Attorney does not represent you on your claim and is an adverse party. Therefore, the City Attorney cannot give you legal advice regarding your claim.
