Wausau City Council to discuss Rosenberg replacement


By: Jackson Schmidtke

WAUSAU (WAOW) - The Wausau City Council will discuss tonight how they plan to go about replacing Alderperson Jim Rosenberg. 

Rosenberg announced last week he is resigning from the Common Council to pursue a new job in Madison.

There he will work for Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton's Office.

Mayor Jim Tipple says the process to fill Rosenberg's seat could take a few months.

He explained the process for deciding on a replacement, "The Council will ask for applications, resumes if you will. They will pick a successor for Jim who will fulfill that  term until the spring election.  And then anybody who's interested can file the appropriate forms before December."

Tipple added, "It's a very important district for the city. They are a very informed voter population district one. They study issues they're very interested in who candidates are and they supported Jim for the past 12 years"

Rosenberg will officially resign from all positions effective July 24th.

Tonight will be his last council meeting.

If you're interested in applying for the council seat, applications will be available on the city website sometime next week.
