60.10 Note NOTE: 2003 Wis. Act 214, which affected this section, contains extensive explanatory notes.

60.10 AnnotationThe terms "authorize" and "direct" in sub. (2) are not used interchangeably. A town meeting that "authorize(s)" an act gives the town board permission to do the act within its discretion, but if it "direct(s)" that an act be done, the action is mandatory. Graziano v. Town of Long Lake, 191 Wis. 2d 813, 530 N.W.2d 55 (Ct. App. 1995).

60.10 AnnotationAssessments made by an assessor appointed in the absence of authorization under sub. (2) (j) were valid under the de facto officer doctrine. Joyce v. Town of Tainter, 2000 WI App 15, 232 Wis. 2d 349, 606 N.W.2d 284, 99-0324.

60.10 AnnotationSection 60.55 does not create an exception to the grant of power to the town meeting to authorize land purchases or construction by the town board. If a town board chooses to meet the requirements of s. 60.55 to provide fire protection by providing housing for fire protection services and also chooses to purchase land and construct that housing, then the town board must proceed with the authorization of the town meeting under sub. (2) (e) and (f) to purchase the land and construct the building. Town of Clayton v. Cardinal Construction Company, Inc. 2009 WI App 54, 317 Wis. 2d 424, 767 N.W.2d 605, 08-1793.

60.10 AnnotationA town board exercising village powers under s. 60.22 (3) is not entitled to purchase land and contract for construction when doing so would conflict with statutes relating to towns and town boards. The village board power to acquire land and construct buildings under s. 61.34 (3) is in direct conflict with sub. (2) (e) and (f), which relates to towns and town boards and which confers that power of authorization on the town meeting. Town of Clayton v. Cardinal Construction Company, Inc. 2009 WI App 54, 317 Wis. 2d 424, 767 N.W.2d 605, 08-1793.
