The Government Accountability Board advises:

Certification as to compliance with applicable statutory requirements for withdrawal from a multijurisdictional court arrangement and establishment of a single municipal court is the statutory responsibility of the Chief Judge of the Judicial District, not the Government Accountability Board.  The Board advises that the Village should comply with all applicable requirements contained in Wis. Stat. ch. 755 in order to obtain certification from the Chief Judge.
