To increase efficiency and flexibility, the Board wishes to delegate limited power to the Clerk.
This delegation is limited to issuance of (common term) picnic licenses, pursuant to §§ 125.26(6) and 125.51(10), Wis. Stats., or a successor for either. Such licenses are by their nature temporary in duration and require no waiting period after application.
When a picnic license application is received within 24 hours of a scheduled Board meeting, or at a time following such a meeting when it requests a license for a time period prior to the next regularly scheduled Board meeting, the Clerk is hereby authorized to approve and issue such a license without Town Board approval, provided that the following standards are present:
The applicant has not held a suspended license or had a revocation of license within the year prior to application.
There is no history of criminal convictions, to the Clerk's knowledge (the Clerk is authorized to verify this information).
The application has been completed to the Clerk's satisfaction.
The Board Chairperson is notified by the Clerk, either orally or in writing, and expresses no objection within 48 hours of notice mailing or transmission.
In this article, the term "Clerk" consistently includes the Deputy Clerk office, if one exists, in the Clerk's absence, unavailability, or because the Deputy is so authorized by the Clerk.
