2.28 Library Board Organization; Terms. The Library Board shall consist of nine (9) members, appointed by the Mayor subject to the approval of the Common Council for a term of three (3) years. Each term shall commence July 1 in the year of the appointment. The Mayor shall appoint as one of the members the School District Administrator, or his representative, to represent the Public School District. Not more than one member of the Common Council shall at any time be a member of the Library Board. No compensation shall be paid to any Board members for their service as such, but they may be reimbursed for their actual and necessary expenses incurred in performing their duties outside the City, if so authorized by the Board. A majority of the Library Board constitutes a quorum, but the Board may, by regulation, provide that three (3) or more members thereof shall constitute a quorum. Duties and Powers. The Library Board shall have the duties and powers as prescribed in secs. 43.25 to 43.31 of the Wisconsin Statutes. Library Book Regulations. No person shall fail, on demand, to return any book, periodical, pamphlet, picture or other article or property belonging to or in charge of the West Allis Public Library, or any of its branches, according to the rules and regulations duly made and adopted by the Library Board, and no person shall remove from the Library, or any of its branches, any book, periodical, pamphlet, picture or other article or property without first having it charged, as provided by such rules and regulations. No person shall mar, deface or in any other way damage or mutilate any book, periodical, pamphlet, picture or other article or property belonging to or in charge of the West Allis Public Library, or any of its branches. Any person convicted of a violation of the provisions of this subsection shall forfeit a sum not to exceed $500.00, together with the costs of prosecution; and in default of payment thereof, by imprisonment in the Milwaukee County House of Correction until such forfeiture and costs are paid, but not more than the number of days set forth in sec. 800.095(4) of the Wisconsin Statutes, or by suspension of the defendant's operating privilege, pursuant to secs. 343.30 and 345.47 of the Wisconsin Statutes. Each and every day that an offense continues constitutes a separate offense. Where there is more than one book, periodical, pamphlet, picture, tape, compact disk, digital video disk, or other article or property involved in any violation, each such item shall constitute a separate offense. The Municipal Judge is hereby empowered to suspend payment of all or any portion of the forfeiture and costs imposed if the person convicted of such offense makes restitution in full to the Library Board for any damage or mutilation or returns such item or items to the Library Board within fifteen (15) days of conviction.
