MC 2.21.010 Purpose: In order to insure fair play and due process in the administration of the affairs, ordinances, resolutions and bylaws of the city, the common council declares that the provisions of Chapter 68 of the Wisconsin Statutes, relating to municipal administrative review procedure shall be in full force and effect in the city except when in conflict with this chapter. (Ord. 61-4443 §1(part), 1980.)

2.21.020 Scope: All officers, employees, agencies, committees, boards and commissions of the city shall comply with the requirements of Chapter 68 of the Wisconsin Statutes, and shall conduct initial administrative reviews of their own determinations in accordance with Section 68.09 of the Wisconsin Statutes, upon filing of a proper written request therefor. (Ord. 61-4443 §1(part), 1980.)

2.21.030 Board--Composition: There is created for the city an administrative review appeals board (appeals board hereafter) consisting of three members and an alternate member which shall have the duty and responsibility of hearing appeals from initial administrative determinations or decisions of officers, employees, agencies, committees, boards and commissions of the city filed in accordance with Section 68.10 of the Wisconsin Statutes, and making a final determination thereupon. The chairman of the public health and safety committee, the chairman of the capital improvement and street maintenance committee, and one citizen shall constitute the membership. The mayor shall appoint the citizen member and in addition one alternate, who shall act only when a member of the appeals board is temporarily unable to serve or refuses, or may not serve, because of interest in or involvement in a prior determination on the subject matter of the appeal.
