Chapter 5 - Cornwall County Town Administration Law:

In order to get more citizens of Cornwall involved in the welfare of their towns, and to provide our citizenry with the ability to get involved in politics, the Council of Cornwall provides the following laws. The first is the enacting of a Town Administration. This is a cabinet of advisors to the mayor of the town.

Note: This is meant to increase RP in the town forums. It should add to the fun. Mayors not wishing to create or change town regulations do not have to form a Town Administration.

Town Administration (TA):

The Town Administration must consist of at least three members who have been residents of the town 30 days and meet the following criteria:
1. All members must be at least level one.
2. One member must be at least level two.
3. Each successive town council must have at least one member from the previous one. This will provide a good transition from mayor to mayor.
4. All town council members should be active in the forums. This is crucial. The TA is an RP position. They will have to take part.

If a proposed member does not meet one of the above criteria, the Mayor can apply to the Council to approve a waiver.

Suggested titles and areas of interest:
1. Minister of Newcomers: help new players.
2. Minister of Law (Police Commissioner): helps monitor slavery and people exceeding our price caps. This will make the job of the public prosecutor easier.
3. Minister of Trade: Helps the mayor coordinate trade with the county and other towns.
4. Minister of Information: Releases information to the townsfolk. This would be similar to the Spokesman of the County.

Cornwall County Town Regulations Law:

To provide the towns of Cornwall with the ability to enact local town regulations, the Council of Cornwall provides the following law:
1. Regulations can only be proposed by the mayor.
2. The proposed regulation must be sent to the County Council. The Council will advise the TA on why it is not a county law, and/or their thoughts on how it will effect the town and county. It is assigned to a councilmember for coordination with the town (preferably a member residing in the town).
3. It must then be debated on by the Town Administration for a minimum of 2 days, more if there is an active debate.
4. It is then voted upon, and must pass by a majority vote (greater than 50%). Each member of the TA must send their vote to the designated councilmember. All members must vote.
5. The final copy is then sent to council for review, which for a minimum of 2 days.
6. The council can reject the regulation with a 2/3 vote. It is only to be used on laws that violate parts of this document, or are deemed detrimental to the town or county.
7. The regulation must be posted in the Town Hall mayor’s message, and in the appropriate town forum, and go into effect on the second reset after this is done.

There should be a “Stickied” Thread in the Town forum that lists any and all regulations. If the proposed regulation fails any of these steps, it is dead, and can either be dropped, or rewritten, and begin again.

Restrictions on Town Regulations:

1. County laws supersede town regulations. This means that a regulation cannot directly contradict a law.
2. Penalties must coincide with the penalties of existing laws. Remember that all fines go to the king, not the county or town.
3. Town regulations must not be in violation with county interests. In order to facilitate this, regulations cannot be on the County Interest List. This is a temporary list of one or two laws that can be provided to any mayor asking for it. It is only to be used in conjunction with current projects. Cornwall Council decides what is on this list by vote.
4. In order to repeal a regulation, the TA must follow the same procedure as above.

The town will prosecute those people that violate these regulations. However, in times of need, the TA can ask the county to prosecute. The decision of whether to prosecute will be decided by vote of the Council.

Minimum Wages and Slavery
The right to establish a minimum legal wage shall be left to the town assembly of each town and city to enforce within the confines of their borders.
1. Anyone who hires below the established minimum wage will be guilty of slavery.
2. Any town or city that does not establish its own minimum wage will be subject to the legal minimum wage of the county which is set at fourteen pounds per day.
3. This law applies to all citizens, towns, cities and the county of Cornwall.
4. The county of Cornwall will establish the minimum wage for all positions within its control (mines, militia, etc). Laws establishing wages for county work will not fall under the laws set by any town or city.
5. Criminals who are sentenced to work community service such as working in the mines, Inter-county Minimum Wage or producing goods for the county as alternative penalties to fines or jail time shall be exempted from this law for the duration of their sentence and only for purposes of fulfilling their sentence.
6. Slavery is considered a Light Crime. Penalties and Maximum punishments are specified under the Penal Code of Cornwall County (Book III, Chapter 2).

Cornwall County Town Regulations Act

To provide the Towns and Cities of Cornwall with the ability to enact local town regulations, the Council of Cornwall provides the following law:

Article I. Procedures for Enacting Town Regulations

Section 1.01 The mayor of the Town or City will propose all regulations to the Council.
Section 1.02 The Count will name a Liaison from the Council who will advise the aforementioned Town Administration of the Town or City on possible conflicts with County Law. The chosen Liaison must be a citizen of the Town or City being advised if such a member of Council exists. If not, the Count may choose from any member of Council.
Section 1.03 After consultation between the Liaison and the Town Administration is completed, the Town Administration may then either redraft the proposal, and again be advised by the chosen Liaison, or may vote on the proposal.
Section 1.04 All proposals must be considered for no less then 48 hours and each member of the Town Administration must be recorded as voting Yea, Nay, or Abstain and their vote sent to the Liaison. The regulation will be considered a Request for Enactment if a majority of the Town Administration votes in favor of the proposal.
Section 1.05 The Liaison will upon receiving a Request for Enactment present it to the Council for ratification. The Council shall then discuss and vote on the Request for Enactment. Councilors must vote Yea, Nay or Abstain. The Council shall require two-thirds of voting members vote Nay to deny any Request for Enactment. Unless a Request for Enactment should be voted down, it shall then become Town Regulation.
Section 1.06 The Liaison shall inform the Mayor of the Town that a Request for Enactment has either been declined or has become a Town Regulation.
Section 1.07 Should any of the aforementioned steps not take place, the Town Regulation shall be declared null and void.

Article II. Restrictions on Town Regulations

Section 2.01 Town Regulations may not supersede County Laws. Any conflict found within an existing Town Regulation shall be decided in favor of County Law.
Section 2.02 All Town Regulations shall be sentenced within the guidelines of the County Penal Code. The Judge shall make final decisions in the reconciliation of Town Regulation penalties with the County Penal Code.
Section 2.03 Town Regulations or sections of Town Regulations will be made null and void by any preceding and/or anteceding County Law that is enacted in conflict with said Town Regulation.
Section 2.04 Upon request, the Spokesman for the Council shall provide a list of current proposals to the mayor of a Town or City. No Town or City may enact a Town Regulation in conflict with any item on said list of County Interests.
Section 2.05 A Town or City may only repeal a Town Regulation by following all steps required in Procedures for Enacting Town Regulations.

Article III. Enforcement of Town Regulations

Section 3.01 The Town or City shall be responsible for the enforcement of all Town Regulations.
Section 3.02 The Town or City shall make Good Effort to resolve any situation involving a breach of Town Regulation before beginning prosecution in the County Court.
Section 3.03 Good Effort shall be defined as the proposed procedures for contacting the Accused and working to settle the matter out of County Court. The Mayor or any member of the Town Administration may initiate said Good Effort.
Section 3.04 Proposed procedures for Good Effort resolution shall be included with all Requests for Enactment.
Section 3.05 If the Accused does not respond within 48 hours, the Town may then begin court proceedings.
Section 3.06 Upon request by a mayor, the County Public Prosecutor may try a Town Regulation case in court. The County Public Prosecutor shall have sole discretion over this decision.
Section 3.07 In each Town and City, the Mayor’s Message must display the laws of both the County and the Town both prominently and clearly (County Laws and Town Regulations: http://forum.renaissancekingdoms.com/viewtopic.php?t=9478 is to be placed at the top of the Mayor’s Message). This announcement of the laws will not be altered, removed nor replaced.

In order to avoid a possible conflict of interest, a player can not be a Mayor and be serving as Captain, Judge, Trade Minister, Count(ess), Sergeant, Constable, Public Prosecutor, or Sheriff at the same time.
Should this apply to someone, he or she will have to make a decision and give up one of these functions. Giving up the mayor position will have to be dealt with by the mayor and the council, for the good of the town. When necessary a player may violate this rule for up to one week while waiting for an election. If a council member violating this rule refuses to resign from one of his/her positions, then the count shall strip them from any office that they hold in the council.

Methos, since you are not candidate in the next election, there should be no problem, since you will be in the TA and that is not seen as a double-mandate.

True, but IU am also no longer Sergeant. I will probably be titleless in council until the elections.
