Title
Amending Section 16.25(4) of the Madison General Ordinances to update the City of Madison's Official Map as defined by the current City of Madison corporate boundary legal description on file with the City Engineer, the extraterritorial jurisdiction limits provided by Wis.

Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  The legal description of the City of Madison Official Map currently contained in Sec. 16.25(4) is outdated and inconsistent with the corporate boundary legal descriptions on file with the City Engineer.  This amendment corrects that problem by directly referencing the corporate legal boundaries on file with the City Engineer, the extraterritorial jurisdiction limits provided by Wis. Stat. § 236.10 (1) (b) 2, and any and all agreements with adjacent towns, villages, cities, or the state.  In doing so, this amendment will update the current legal description contained in Sec. 16.25(4) and allow the legal description to automatically change if and when the City's corporate legal boundaries change in the future.
