The Court may also grant injunctive relief. Failure to comply with an order of abatement issued under this Ordinance shall constitute a violation of this Ordinance, and each day of continued violation shall constitute a separate offense. Failure to pay any penalties imposed by the court in accordance with this Ordinance may result in imprisonment in the County Jail until payment is made but not to exceed 90 days.
16.11 SEVERABILITY. Each section, paragraph, sentence, clause, word, and provision of this Ordinance is severable and if any portion shall be deemed unconstitutional or invalid for any reason, such decision shall not effect the remainder of this Ordinance nor any part thereof other than the portion affected by such decision.

WHEREAS, the Governor and the Wisconsin Legislature will be considering budget legislation that will address funding of public library systems for the years 2000 and 2001; and
WHEREAS, the passage of Act 150 (SB 269) placed additional services and formalized the county role as support to municipal libraries for non-resident use; and
WHEREAS, the Jefferson County Board wishes to clearly state its position with respect to these events and mandates: The state mandate upon the county to adequately fund library services within the county implies a similar mandate upon the state to adequately fund library services of a regional and statewide nature. Since Act 150, passed by both houses of the Legislature and signed by Governor Thompson, also included a directive to the Department of Public Instruction to request in the Department budget an amount for public library system aids equal to 13% of the total funds appropriated locally throughout the state for library services, the "adequate" level for public library system aids has been officially described and endorsed. If each level of government (municipal, county, and state) meets its obligations to constructively support library services and cooperation, Wisconsin will continue to have true open access for all citizens in an environment where libraries will have the means to provide the services needed and desired by state residents. If each level of government (municipal, county, and state) meets its obligations to constructively support library services and cooperation, no single level of government or its constituents will be unfairly burdened and duplication of effort will be eliminated.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Jefferson County Board of Supervisors does hereby encourage Governor Thompson and senators and representatives for our county to develop and support budget legislation that will assure 13% funding for public library system aids for the next biennium.
Mrs. Turner moved that Resolution No. 98-61 be adopted. Seconded and carried.

WHEREAS, the Jefferson County Parks Department has expertise in the maintenance of buildings and grounds, and
WHEREAS, the County Board Rules provide in part that the Fair Park Committee has responsibility for maintenance of the buildings and grounds at the Fair Park, and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Parks Committee and the Fair Park Committee meet to discuss the feasibility of transfer of buildings and grounds maintenance responsibility at the Fair Park to the Parks Committee and the Parks Department, and consider the following:
1. Transfer of current Fair Park maintenance staff to the Parks Department.

3. Need for a full-time Fair Park Manager if maintenance and leasing responsibilities are transferred to the Parks Department.
