Title
A charter ordinance relating to a technical correction concerning the temporary absence of municipal judges.
Sections
3-34-5-d am
Analysis
Currently, whenever a municipal judge is temporarily absent, his or her office will be filled for the period of the absence by one or more municipal judges from other municipalities within Wisconsin, as provided under state law.

This charter ordinance makes a technical correction by changing the reference to such judges from “substitute judges” to “alternate judges”.
Body
The Mayor and Common Council of the City of Milwaukee do ordain as follows:

Part 1. Section 3-34-5-d of the code is amended to read:

3-34. Municipal Court.
5. PROCEDURE.
d. Temporary Absence of Judge. Whenever a municipal judge shall be temporarily absent, his or her office shall be filled for the period of the absence by one or more municipal judges from other municipalities within the state of Wisconsin, as provided for by s. 800.06(1)(a), Wis. Stats., in accordance with the terms of agreements, which the chief court administrator shall execute with the [[substitute]] >>alternate<< judges. Agreements fixing the compensation to be paid to such [[substitute]] >>alternate<< judges and the manner of payment shall be established by the common council.

Part 2. This is a charter ordinance and shall take effect 60 days after its passage and publication, unless within such 60 days a referendum petition is filed as provided in s. 66.0101(5), Wis. Stats., in which event this ordinance shall not take effect until submitted to a referendum and approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon.
