John and Deb Kunz recently filed suit against the City of Lake Forest in Lake County Circuit Court, contending the city has no right to replace the 170-foot-long, 5-foot-wide concrete path in front of their home. They tore it out last November without seeking permission.

The city countersued this month, saying the sidewalk was public property that provided a path to a nearby park and grammar school.

"This was a public easement with a sidewalk on it for 18 years . . . and they illegally removed a public sidewalk," City Manager John Kiely said Wednesday.

Sigh. This is a democracy, and we have appropriate channels for that. (h/t Erin)
