Pursuant to Section 19.33 (4), Wisconsin Statutes, The Winter Public Library Board designates the Winter Library Director as the legal custodial of the public records as described in the Statutes. In the absence of the director, any two Library Board Trustees may also serve together as deputy legal custodians of the public records of the library. These custodians are vested with full legal authority to render decisions and carry out the duties enumerated in Subchapter 11, Chapter 19, Wisconsin Statutes, governing public records and property.
During Library hours, interested individuals may request and be granted access to public records.
Individuals must state in writing what records they wish to examine and present this request to the library staff on duty at the time of the request. The legal custodian (Library Director) or deputies (two trustees, acting together) will act on the request as expeditiously as possible within the scope of their other duties.
Persons wishing to photocopy records will be charged 25 cents per page and must not interfere with the normal use of the photocopy machine.
Under no circumstances may any member of the public remove public records from the library premises.
