Sue town in small claims court?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Massapequa, NY

a town truck damaged my fence. I filed a notice of claim within 90 days, the monetary value of the damage would be in the small claims area, about $3500.OO would this be a small claims matter or would i have to go to the next level because their a town?

    Answered . Jurisdiction against the municipality probably lies at "the next level" as you put it and not in small claims court.
