Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a lake protection and rehabilitation district may be created
to carry out a program of lake protection and rehabilitation. Under current law, the
district must let to the lowest responsible bidder any contract in excess of $2,500 for
the performance of any work or the purchase of any materials. This bill increases
this threshold to $10,000.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
33.22 (1) of the statutes is amended to read:
Any district organized under this chapter may select a name for the 5
district, sue and be sued, make contracts, accept gifts, purchase, lease, devise or 6
otherwise acquire, hold, maintain or dispose of property, disburse money, contract 7
and do any other acts necessary to carry out a program of lake protection and 8
rehabilitation. All contracts in excess of $2,500
for the performance of any
work or the purchase of any materials shall be let by the commissioners to the lowest 2
responsible bidder in the manner they prescribe.
