RESOLUTION NO. 26-11

TO APPROVE THE SHAWANO COUNTY ALL HAZARDS MITIGATION PLAN

WHEREAS, on October 30, 2000, the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 was signed into law by the U.S. Congress in an attempt to stem the losses from disasters, reduce future public and private expenditures, and to speed up response and recovery from disasters; and

WHEREAS, since that time, an extensive series of meetings were held in an effort to increase awareness of the County's plan development efforts, as well as to seek information and input from local government officials and other stakeholders on the types of hazards to be considered, the analysis of natural and man-made hazards as they apply to Shawano County, appropriate mitigation strategies, and to review draft reports as they were developed; and

RESOLUTION NO. 27-11

TO ESTABLISH A UNIFORM POLICY CONCERNING THE SETTING AND MODIFICATION OF SHAWANO COUNTY FEES

WHEREAS, Shawano County has numerous departments governed by numerous home committees which render services and charge fees to Shawano County residents for these services; and

WHEREAS, these departments include the Highway Department; Sheriff's Department; Social Services; Department of Community Programs; Planning, Development and Zoning; and the Register of Deeds; among others; and

WHEREAS, in the past, the fees charged by these departments, in conjunction with their home committees, have sometimes been approved by the Shawano County Board, and in other cases they have not; and

WHEREAS, Shawano County desires to establish a uniform policy concerning the setting of and future modification of the fees charged for the services rendered by the various departments in conjunction with their respective home committees; and

WHEREAS, the departments and home committees rendering the services and setting the fees are uniquely familiar with the provision of the services and the internal costs involved with the rendering of such services; and

WHEREAS, the Administrative Committee has met and reviewed this matter, and recommends delegating the setting and modification of fees charged by the various departments to the home committees overseeing those departments given the home committees familiarity with the departments they govern; and

WHEREAS, in the event a home committee desires to have the County Board approve the setting or modification of a given fee, the home committee is free to recommend the setting or modification of the fee to the County Board for its approval.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SHAWANO COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS in session this 18th day of May, 2011, that the Shawano County Board hereby ratifies the fees currently charged by each department, and delegates the further creation and modification of fees charged by the various departments to the respective home committee.

RESOLUTION NO. 28-11

TO STATE THE COUNTY BOARD'S INTENT TO JOIN THE MENOMINEE REGIONAL TRANSIT SYSTEM

WHEREAS, after reviewing various options to sustain the services offered by the County's transportation program, the Tribal Affairs Committee recommends joining the Menominee Regional Transit System; and

WHEREAS, the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin (WITW) has operated a regional transit system for the past twenty-seven years and has an annual operating budget of approximately $2 million dollars; and

WHEREAS, by joining the Menominee Regional Transit System, Shawano County will be able to sustain the current level of transportation services at current funding levels, and it is likely that transportation services may be expanded at less costs to riders in the future; and

WHEREAS, to take the next step in this process, it is recommended that the County Board pledges its support for this proposal by stating its support for Shawano County to join the Menominee Regional Transit System; and

WHEREAS, the goal is to have the transit service available to Shawano County residents by January 1, 2012; and

WHEREAS, this statement of support will allow the parties to negotiate an Intergovernmental Agreement which will set forth all the terms and conditions relating to the provision of transportation services to residents of Shawano County; and

WHEREAS, a formal Intergovernmental Agreement will be presented to the Shawano County Board of Supervisors and the Menominee Tribal Legislature for their review and approval.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SHAWANO COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS in session this 18th day of May, 2011, that it states its support for and intention to join the Menominee Regional Transit System, subject to subsequent approval by the County Board of a formal Intergovernmental Agreement.

RESOLUTION NO. 29-11

TO SUPPORT THE “WISCONSIN IDEA PARTNERSHIP” THAT WOULD SERVE TO AVOID COSTLY FRAGMENTATION OF THE UW SYSTEM

WHEREAS, the budget bill provides for major cuts to all institutions in the UW System, but allows for increased management flexibilities only for UW-Madison, and further separates UW-Madison from all other UW System institutions through the creation of a new UW-Madison public authority; and

WHEREAS, UW-Extension is tied closely not only with UW-Madison, but with all two-and-four-year institutions around the state; and

WHEREAS, the Wisconsin Idea Partnership, as explained in the two-page attachment to this Resolution, keeps the current UW System together and focuses on Access, Affordability, and Accountability (further information regarding Wisconsin Idea Partnership may be procured from the UW-Extension Office); and

WHEREAS, fragmentation of the UW System will diminish UW-Extension's ability to make available to every corner of the state the vast stores of knowledge and expertise possessed by UW System faculty and staff through UW-Extension's partnerships with 26 UW System campuses, 72 Wisconsin counties, three tribal governments, and other public and private organizations; and

WHEREAS, fragmentation of the UW System will jeopardize the shared research and outreach activities between UW-Madison and UW-Extension and will eliminate a shared set of policies and procedures that aid research and teaching collaborations between the institutions that make it easier for information and research to be disseminated and partnerships to take hold; and

WHEREAS, the Shawano County Board of Supervisors believes that any action that would break up the UW System puts at risk a proven and successful approach for delivering quality and effective services throughout the state.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SHAWANO COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS in session this 18th day of May, 2011, that it believes that all UW System institutions working together through a carefully planned structure is necessary to continue to improve the fiscal and social well-being of the citizens of Wisconsin.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Shawano County Board of Supervisors strongly supports the Wisconsin Idea Partnership as proposed by the UW System and its Board of Regents.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Governor Scott Walker; Shawano County State Representatives and State Senators; Kevin Reilly, President, UW System; Ray Cross, Chancellor, UW Colleges and UW-Extension; Rosemary Potter, Director of Government Relations, UW Colleges and UW-Extension; Rick Klemme, Dean and Director, Cooperative Extension, UW-Extension; Oconto County Board; Langlade County Board; Waupaca County Board; Brown County Board; Outagamie County Board; Marathon County Board and the Wisconsin Counties Association.
