[Adopted by Ord. No. 88-3]
Pursuant to § 59.04, Wis. Stats., there is established a County Department of Land Management.
The purposes outlining the creation of a Department of Land Management include:
A. 
Development of an administrative structure in County government to incorporate all of the land-use-related units under a common framework for improved coordination and efficiency of operation;
B. 
Development of a common geographical database whereby all departments would develop and access information tied to a defined geodetic base which would be common to all public and private uses of this information;
C. 
Coordinating the work programs of the various units of County government for more efficient utilization of staff, facilities and resources which could be brought to bear in meeting County needs;
D. 
Easier access by the public and users of land use information to the records and information contained in the current separate departments;
E. 
Minimizing future expenditures by allowing for multiple use of facilities and resources by County units which now function as separate entities; and
F. 
Development of a land records modernization system for the County based on national and state initiatives to implement a uniform coordinated statewide system of land records management.[1]
