[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Fox Point 9-14-1999 by Ord. No. 99-20 (§ 2.047 of the 1961 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Chief of Police is designated the Fox Point Emergency Management Coordinator, and the Village Board herein delegates its emergency powers under §§ 323.11 and 323.14(4), Wis. Stats., to the Chief of Police.
The Fox Point Emergency Management Coordinator, or the Village Manager, in his absence, is empowered to declare an emergency existing within the Village whenever conditions arise, either within the Village or within other municipalities or areas, by reason of war, conflagration, flood, heavy snow storm, blizzard, catastrophe, disaster, riot or civil commotion, acts of God, and including conditions, without limitation or restriction because of enumeration, which impair transportation, food or fuel supplies, medical care, fire, health or police protection or other vital facilities of the Village, or endanger the health, welfare or safety of persons or property in the Village. The period of such emergency shall be limited to the time during which such emergency conditions exist or are likely to exist. Even though none of the conditions exist which authorize a declaration of an emergency under this provision, an emergency may be declared if there are reasonable grounds for belief that any one or more of said conditions is impending or threatened.
The emergency power herewith conferred shall include such general authority to order whatever is necessary and expedient for the health, safety, welfare and good order of the Village in such emergency, and shall include such authority as is necessary and expedient without limitation or restriction because of enumeration and shall include the power to bar, restrict or remove all unnecessary traffic, both vehicular and pedestrian, from the streets and highways in the Village, notwithstanding any provisions of Chs. 341 to 349, Wis. Stats., or any other provisions of law, or ordinances of this Village.
The Emergency Management Coordinator shall exercise all powers and authority as provided by the Fox Point Municipal Emergency Operations Plan as adopted by the Village Board. The Emergency Management Coordinator shall have the authority to reasonably modify the Plan consistent with its intent without authority of the Village Board, and so as to best protect the citizens of the Village of Fox Point. The Emergency Management Coordinator shall also conduct a yearly review and update of the Plan and provide notification to the Village Board of any modifications or updates.
