Any owner of property who has filed objections to the plan as provided under sub. (6) may be entitled to a remedy as determined by s. 32.06 (5).
66.1333(5)(b)4. 4. The authority may acquire by purchase real property within any area designated for urban renewal or redevelopment purposes under this section before the approval of either the redevelopment or urban renewal plans or before any modification of the plan if approval of the acquisition is granted by the local governing body. If real property is acquired, the authority may demolish or remove structures with the approval of the local governing body. If acquired real property is not made part of the urban renewal project the authority shall bear any loss that may arise as a result of the acquisition, demolition or removal of structures acquired under this section. If the local legislative body has given its approval to the acquisition of real property that is not made a part of the urban renewal project, it shall reimburse the authority for any loss sustained as provided for in this subsection. Any real property acquired in a redevelopment or in an urban renewal area under this subsection may be disposed of under this section if the local governing body has approved the acquisition of the property for the project.
66.1333(5)(c)1.1. Notwithstanding sub. (6), the authority of a 1st class city may acquire any property determined by the authority to be blighted property without designating a boundary or adopting a redevelopment plan. The authority may not acquire property under this subdivision without the approval of the local legislative body of the city in which the authority is located.
66.1333(5)(c)1g. 1g. Notwithstanding sub. (6), the authority of any 2nd, 3rd or 4th class city may acquire blighted property without designating a boundary or adopting a redevelopment plan, if all of the following occur:
66.1333(5)(c)1g.a. a. The authority obtains advance approval for the acquisition by at least a two-thirds vote of the members of the local legislative body in which the authority is located.
66.1333(5)(c)1g.b. b. The two-thirds approval in subd. 1g. a. shall be by resolution and the resolution shall contain a finding of the local legislative body that a comprehensive redevelopment plan is not necessary to determine the need for the acquisition, the uses of the property after acquisition and the relation of the acquisition to other property redevelopment by the authority.
66.1333(5)(c)1r. 1r. Condemnation proceedings for the acquisition of blighted property shall be conducted under ch. 32 or under any other law relating specifically to eminent domain procedures of authorities. The authority may hold, clear, construct, manage, improve or dispose of the blighted property, for the purpose of eliminating its status as blighted property. Notwithstanding sub. (9), the authority may dispose of the blighted property in any manner. The authority may assist private acquisition, improvement and development of blighted property for the purpose of eliminating its status as blighted property, and for that purpose the authority has all of the duties, rights, powers and privileges given to the authority under this section, as if it had acquired the blighted property.
66.1333(5)(c)2. 2. Before acquiring blighted property under subd. 1. or 1g., the authority shall hold a public hearing to determine if the property is blighted property. Notice of the hearing, describing the time, date, place and purpose of the hearing and generally identifying the property involved, shall be given to each owner of the property, at least 20 days before the date set for the hearing, by certified mail with return receipt requested. If the notice cannot be delivered by certified mail with return receipt requested, or if the notice is returned undelivered, notice may be given by posting the notice at least 10 days before the date of hearing on any structure located on the property which is the subject of the notice. If the property which is the subject of the notice consists of vacant land, a notice may be posted in some suitable and conspicuous place on that property. For the purpose of ascertaining the name of the owner or owners of record of property which is subject to a public hearing under this subdivision, the records of the register of deeds of the county in which the property is located, as of the date of the notice required under this subdivision, are conclusive. An affidavit of mailing or posting the notice which is filed as a part of the records of the authority is prima facie evidence of that notice. In the hearing under this subdivision, all interested parties may express their views on the authority's proposed determination, but the hearing is only for informational purposes. Any technical omission or error in the procedure under this subdivision does not invalidate the designation or subsequent acquisition. If any owner of property subject to the authority's determination that the property is blighted property objects to that determination or to the authority's acquisition of that property, that owner shall file a written statement of and reasons for the objections with the authority before, at the time of, or within 15 days after the public hearing under this subdivision. The statement shall contain the mailing address of the person filing the statement and be signed by or on behalf of that person. The filing of that statement is a condition precedent to the commencement of an action to contest the authority's actions under this paragraph.

(2) and will promote the sound growth and economic development of cities and enhance the education of youth in neighborhood settings. The legislature determines that the social and economic problems sought to be addressed are particularly acute in more densely populated areas.

66.1333(5r)(b)1.1.

66.1333(5r)(d) (d) Designation of special debt service reserve funds. The authority may designate one or more accounts in funds created under the resolution authorizing the issuance of bonds under this subsection as special debt service reserve funds if, prior to each issuance of bonds to be secured by the special debt service reserve fund, the secretary of administration determines that all of the following conditions are met with respect to the bonds:
66.1333(5r)(d)1. 1. `Purpose.' The proceeds of the bonds, other than refunding bonds, will be used for public school facilities in the school district operating under ch. 119.
66.1333(5r)(d)2. 2. `Feasibility.' There is a reasonable likelihood that the bonds will be repaid without the necessity of drawing on funds in the special debt service reserve fund that secures the bonds. The secretary of administration may make this determination of reasonable likelihood only after considering all of the following:
66.1333(5r)(d)2.a. a. The extent to which and manner by which revenues of the school district operating under ch. 119 are pledged to the payment of the bonds.

66.1333(5r)(d)2.e. e. Whether an understanding exists providing for repayment by the authority to the state of all amounts appropriated to the special debt service reserve fund pursuant to par. (j).
66.1333(5r)(d)2.f. f. Whether the authority has agreed that the department of administration will have direct and immediate access, at any time and without notice, to all records of the authority relating to the bonds.

66.1333(5r)(d)4.a. a. The bonds to be refunded by the refunding bonds are secured by a special debt service reserve fund.
66.1333(5r)(d)4.b. b. The refunding will not adversely affect the risk that the state will be called on to make a payment under par. (j).
66.1333(5r)(d)4.c. c. The refunding bonds do not extend the maturity of bonds previously issued by the authority under par. (b) 1.
66.1333(5r)(d)5. 5. `Approval of outstanding debt.' All outstanding bonds of the authority issued under this subsection have been reviewed and approved by the secretary of administration. In determining whether to approve outstanding bonds under this subdivision, the secretary may consider any factor that the secretary determines to have a bearing on whether the state moral obligation pledge under par. (j) should be granted with respect to an issuance of bonds.
66.1333(5r)(d)6. 6. `Financial reports.' The authority has agreed to provide to the department of administration all financial reports of the authority and all regular monthly statements of any trustee of the bonds on a direct and ongoing basis.
66.1333(5r)(e) (e) Payment of funds into a special debt service reserve fund. The authority shall pay into any special debt service reserve fund of the authority any moneys appropriated and made available by the state for the purposes of the special debt service reserve fund, any proceeds of a sale of bonds to the extent provided in the bond resolution authorizing the issuance of the bonds and any other moneys that are made available to the authority for the purpose of the special debt service reserve fund from any other source.
66.1333(5r)(f) (f) Use of moneys in the special debt service reserve fund. All moneys held in any special debt service reserve fund of the authority for bonds issued under this subsection, except as otherwise specifically provided, shall be used solely for the payment of the principal of the bonds, the making of sinking fund payments with respect to the bonds, the purchase or redemption of the bonds, the payment of interest on the bonds or the payment of any redemption premium required to be paid when the bonds are redeemed prior to maturity. If moneys in a special debt service reserve fund at any time are less than the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) for the special debt service reserve fund, the authority may not use these moneys for any optional purchase or optional redemption of the bonds. Any income or interest earned by, or increment to, any special debt service reserve fund due to the investment of moneys in the special debt service reserve fund may be transferred by the authority to other funds or accounts of the authority relating to the bonds to the extent that the transfer does not reduce the amount of the special debt service reserve fund below the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) for the special debt service reserve fund.
66.1333(5r)(g) (g) Limitation on bonds secured by a special debt service reserve fund. The authority shall accumulate in each special debt service reserve fund an amount equal to the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) for the special debt service reserve fund. The authority may not at any time issue bonds under this subsection secured in whole or in part by a special debt service reserve fund if upon the issuance of these bonds the amount in the special debt service reserve fund will be less than the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) for the special debt service reserve fund.
66.1333(5r)(h) (h) Special debt service reserve fund requirement. The special debt service reserve fund requirement for a special debt service reserve fund, as of any particular date of computation, is equal to an amount of money, as provided in the bond resolution authorizing bonds under this subsection with respect to which the special debt service reserve fund is established, that may not exceed the maximum annual debt service on the bonds of the authority for that fiscal year or any future fiscal year of the authority secured in whole or in part by that special debt service reserve fund. In computing the annual debt service for any fiscal year, bonds deemed to have been paid in accordance with the defeasance provisions of the bond resolution authorizing the issuance of the bonds shall not be included in bonds outstanding on such date of computation. The annual debt service for any fiscal year is the amount of money equal to the aggregate of all of the following calculated on the assumption that the bonds will, after the date of computation, cease to be outstanding by reason, but only by reason, of the payment of bonds when due, and the payment when due, and application in accordance with the bond resolution authorizing those bonds, of all of the sinking fund payments payable at or after the date of computation:
66.1333(5r)(h)1. 1. All interest payable during the fiscal year on all bonds that are secured in whole or in part by the special debt service reserve fund and that are outstanding on the date of computation.
66.1333(5r)(h)2. 2. The principal amount of all of the bonds that are secured in whole or in part by the special debt service reserve fund, are outstanding on the date of computation, and mature during the fiscal year.
66.1333(5r)(h)3. 3. All amounts specified in bond resolutions of the authority authorizing any of the bonds that are secured in whole or in part by the special debt service reserve fund to be payable during the fiscal year as a sinking fund payment with respect to any of the bonds that mature after the fiscal year.
66.1333(5r)(i) (i) Valuation of securities. In computing the amount of a special debt service reserve fund for the purposes of this subsection, securities in which all or a portion of the special debt service reserve fund is invested shall be valued at par, or, if purchased at less than par, at their cost to the authority.
66.1333(5r)(j) (j) State moral obligation pledge. If at any time of valuation the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) for a special debt service reserve fund exceeds the amount of moneys in the special debt service reserve fund, the authority shall certify to the secretary of administration, the governor and the joint committee on finance the amount necessary to restore the special debt service reserve fund to an amount equal to the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) for the special debt service reserve fund. If this certification is received by the secretary of administration in an even-numbered year prior to the completion of the budget compilation under s. 16.43, the secretary shall include the certified amount in the budget compilation. In any case, the joint committee on finance shall introduce in either house, in bill form, an appropriation of the amount so certified to the appropriate special debt service reserve fund of the authority. Recognizing its moral obligation to do so, the legislature hereby expresses its expectation and aspiration that, if ever called upon to do so, it shall make this appropriation. This paragraph applies only to bonds issued under, and in compliance with, this subsection.
66.1333(5r)(L) (L) Types of schools. The proceeds of bonds issued under this subsection may not be used for modular schools.
66.1333(5s) (5s)Unfunded service liability.
66.1333(5s)(a)(a) Bond issuance. Subject to s. 119.499 (1), the authority of a 1st class city may issue up to $200,000,000 in bonds to finance or refinance the payment of unfunded prior service liability contributions under the Wisconsin Retirement System for the board of school directors of the school district operating under ch. 119 if the board of school directors of the school district operating under ch. 119 requests the issuance of the bonds.
66.1333(5s)(b) (b) Terms and conditions. The terms and conditions of bonds issued under this subsection shall be those specified in sub. (5) (a) 4. The bonds may not have a maturity in excess of 40 years.
66.1333(5s)(c) (c) Bonds not secured by special debt service reserve funds. If the authority issues bonds under this subsection that are not secured by a special debt service reserve fund, as provided under par. (d), pars. (e) to (i) do not apply.
66.1333(5s)(d) (d) Designation of special debt service reserve funds.

66.1333(5s)(d)6. 6. `Financial reports.' The authority has agreed to provide to the department of administration all financial reports of the authority and all regular monthly statements of any trustee of the bonds on a direct and ongoing basis.
66.1333(5s)(e) (e) Payment of funds into a special debt service reserve fund. The authority shall pay into any special debt service reserve fund of the authority any moneys appropriated and made available by the state for the purposes of the special debt service reserve fund, any proceeds of a sale of bonds to the extent provided in the bond resolution authorizing the issuance of the bonds and any other moneys that are made available to the authority for the purpose of the special debt service reserve fund from any other source.
66.1333(5s)(f) (f) Use of moneys in the special debt service reserve fund. All moneys held in any special debt service reserve fund of the authority for bonds issued under this subsection, except as otherwise specifically provided, shall be used solely for the payment of the principal of the bonds, the making of sinking fund payments with respect to the bonds, the purchase or redemption of the bonds, the payment of interest on the bonds or the payment of any redemption premium required to be paid when the bonds are redeemed prior to maturity. If moneys in a special debt service reserve fund at any time are less than the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) for the special debt service reserve fund, the authority may not use these moneys for any optional purchase or optional redemption of the bonds. Any income or interest earned by, or increment to, any special debt service reserve fund due to the investment of moneys in the special debt service reserve fund in excess of the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) may be transferred by the authority to other funds or accounts of the authority relating to the bonds.
66.1333(5s)(g) (g) Limitation on bonds secured by a special debt service reserve fund. The authority shall accumulate in each special debt service reserve fund an amount equal to the special debt service reserve fund requirement under par. (h) for the special debt service reserve fund.

66.1333(6)(a)(a) The authority may make and prepare a comprehensive plan of redevelopment and urban renewal which shall be consistent with the general plan of the city, including the appropriate maps, tables, charts and descriptive and analytical matter. The plan is intended to serve as a general framework or guide of development within which the various area and redevelopment and urban renewal projects may be more precisely planned and calculated. The comprehensive plan shall include at least a land use plan which designates the proposed general distribution and general locations and extents of the uses of the land for housing, business, industry, recreation, education, public buildings, public reservations and other general categories of public and private uses of the land. The authority may make all other surveys and plans necessary under this section, and adopt or approve, modify and amend the plans.
66.1333(6)(b) (b) For the exercise of the powers granted and for the acquisition and disposition of real property in a project area, the following steps and plans are required:
66.1333(6)(b)1. 1. Designation by the authority of the boundaries of the proposed project area, submission of the boundaries to the local legislative body, and adoption of a resolution by two-thirds of the local legislative body declaring the area to be a blighted area in need of a blight elimination, slum clearance and urban renewal project. After these acts, the local legislative body may, by resolution by two-thirds vote, prohibit for an initial period of not to exceed 6 months from enactment of the resolution any new construction in the area except upon resolution by the local legislative body that the proposed new construction, on reasonable conditions stated in the resolution, will not substantially prejudice the preparation or processing of a plan for the area and is necessary to avoid substantial damage to the applicant. The order of prohibition is subject to successive renewals for like periods by like resolutions, but no new construction contrary to any resolution of prohibition may be authorized by any agency, board or commission of the city in the area except as provided in this subdivision. No prohibition of new construction may be construed to forbid ordinary repair or maintenance, or improvement necessary to continue occupancy under any regulatory order.
66.1333(6)(b)2. 2. Approval by the authority and by two-thirds of the local legislative body of the redevelopment plan of the project area which has been prepared by the authority. The redevelopment plan shall conform to the general plan of the city and shall be sufficiently complete to indicate its relationship to definite local objectives as to appropriate land uses, improved traffic, public transportation, public utilities, recreational and community facilities, and other public improvements in the project area. The redevelopment plan shall include a statement of the boundaries of the project area; a map showing existing uses and conditions of real property; a land use plan showing proposed uses of the area; information showing the standards of population density, land coverage and building intensity in the area after redevelopment; present and potential equalized value for property tax purposes; a statement of proposed changes in zoning ordinances or maps and building codes and ordinances; a statement as to the kind and number of site improvements and additional public utilities which will be required to support the new land uses in the area after redevelopment; and a statement of a feasible method proposed for the relocation of families to be displaced from the project area.
66.1333(6)(b)3. 3. Approval of a redevelopment plan of a project area by the authority, which may be given only after a public hearing conducted by the authority and a finding by the authority that the plan is feasible and in conformity with the general plan of the city. Notice of the hearing, describing the time, date, place and purpose of the hearing and generally identifying the project area, shall be published as a class 2 notice, under ch. 985, the last insertion to be at least 10 days before the date set for the hearing. At least 20 days before the date set for the hearing on the proposed redevelopment plan of the project area a notice shall be transmitted by certified mail, with return receipt requested, to each owner of real property of record within the boundaries of the redevelopment plan. If transmission of the notice by certified mail with return receipt requested cannot be accomplished, or if the letter is returned undelivered, then notice may be given by posting the notice at least 10 days before the date of hearing on any structure located on the property or, if the property consists of vacant land, a notice may be posted in some suitable and conspicuous place on the land. The notice shall state the time and place at which the hearing will be held with respect to the redevelopment plan and that the owner's property might be taken for urban renewal. For the purpose of ascertaining the name of the owner of record of the real property within the project boundaries, the records, at the time of the approval by the redevelopment authority of the project boundaries, of the register of deeds of the county in which the property is located are conclusive. Failure to receive the notice does not invalidate the plan. An affidavit of mailing or posting of the notice filed as a part of the records of the authority is prima facie evidence of the giving of notice. All interested parties shall be afforded a full opportunity to express their views on the proposed plan at the public hearing, but the hearing shall only be for the purpose of assisting the authority in making its determination and in submitting its report to the local legislative body. Any technical omission in the procedure outlined in this subdivision does not invalidate the plan. Any owner of property included within the boundaries of the redevelopment plan who objects to the plan shall state the owner's objections and the reasons for objecting, in writing, and file the s document with the authority before the public hearing, at the time of the public hearing, or within 15 days after the hearing.
