UNFINISHED BUSINESS

A letter dated November 30, 2012 was received from County Executive Nelson recommending the reappointments of Bob Stadel, Sue Kinde, Chuck Kell, and Dave Muench to the Greenway Implementation Committee, said terms expiring October 2015. These appointments were held since initially being introduced on October 23, 2012, for additional paperwork, which has now been received and is attached. In addition, the appointment of Tom Walsh is being recommended for a three-year term. His information is also attached. He will be replacing Dave Muench, who will now be serving as a Citizen member.

Resolution No. 40—2012-2013 Public Safety Committee. Authorize the Outagamie County Lobbyist to request that the state legislature re-examine Wisconsin State Statute 968.255 regarding strip searches and change the outdated language to mirror the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Florence v. Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Burlington, 4/2012.

At the October 9, 2012 meeting, Supervisor Duncan requested that Resolution No. 40—2012-2013 be held in committee. No objection; so ordered.

At the October 23, 2012 meeting, Supervisor Duncan moved, seconded by Supervisor Hofacker, for adoption. Supervisor Duncan moved, seconded by Supervisor Rahmlow, to amend Resolution No. 40—2012-2013 on line 4, to change the last sentence to read, “The current statute is outdated and may need to be changed.” In addition, the first resolve would be deleted and changed to read, “BE IT RESOLVED, that the Outagamie Board of Supervisors does authorize the County Lobbyist to request the state legislature to update and review Wisconsin State Statute 968.225 regarding strip searches and assist our law enforcement personnel by updating policies and procedures under which a strip search is allowed.” Supervisor Schmidt questioned why the resolution had not gone through the Legislative/Audit & Human Resources Committee as it was required by Board rules to go through their committee. Corporation Counsel Guidote questioned whether action was taken by the committee. Supervisor Schmidt reported that the committee had not acted on it. Because the committee had not acted on the resolution, Corporation Counsel Guidote ruled that no further actions should be taken by the County Board until the Legislative/Audit & Human Resources Committee acted on the resolution. The resolution, therefore, was referred back to the Public Safety Committee to have them work with the Legislative/Audit & Human Resources Committee on review.

At the November 5, 2012 meeting, Supervisor Duncan requested the resolution continue to be held in committee. No objections; so ordered.
