1An Act to amend
60.75 (3) (b) of the statutes; relating to: changing the
2residency requirements for town sanitary district commissioners.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under this bill, with regard to a town sanitary district that is composed
primarily of summer resort property, any of the commissioners may be a resident of
the district. Currently, at least one of the commissioners is required to be a resident
of the district. Under the bill, as is the case under current law, any commissioner who
is not a resident of the district must own property within the district.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
60.75 (3) (b) of the statutes is amended to read:
(b) If commissioners are elected or appointed and if the sanitary 5
district is composed primarily of summer resort property, at least one any
of the 6
commissioners shall may
be a resident of the district. Any commissioner who is not 7
a resident shall own property within the town sanitary district.
(1) This act first applies to a commissioner whose term begins on the effective 2
date of this subsection.
