Couple files civil action

in Vilas County Court
The State Supreme Court has rejected hearing an appeal by Tom and Karen Martens of St. Germain on the relocation of a snowmobile trail along Highway 155 that would cross their driveway.
Meanwhile, the Martenses filed a civil action Monday in Vilas County Circuit Court requesting a temporary restraining order against the county.
According to Tom Martens, he has filed the action himself hoping for a hearing on what he feels is the real issue.
“The basis of my suit is that I feel we didn’t get a fair hearing on using the highway right of way for snowmobiling,” Martens said.
