Town of Saint Germain Resolutions

Most decisions made at town board and town committee meetings are presented, discussed and voted on in the form of motions. Topics are occasionally presented and discussed as resolutions, especially when the matter is more complex than most motions or requires a more formal format. The Wisconsin Towns Association describes motions and resolutions as follows:

Motion: A procedural action made orally at a meeting to present an issue for discussion and action.
Resolution: A formal determination or expression of a body’s policy or position (generally in writing)

Resolutions include several "Whereas" statements followed by a "Therefore be it resolved" declaration. The "Whereas" statements are essentially the justification for the action being committed to or "adopted" in the "Therefore" statement.

The following list of resolutions have been adopted by St. Germain town boards over the years:
