Marathon Co. Board will stay at 38

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -- The Marathon County Board will stay at 38 members. After months of debate, the board overwhelmingly voted Tuesday night against reducing its size.

With redistricting coming on the heels of the 2010 census, the board had spent months discussing a reduction.

Marathon County has the largest board in the state.

The County Administrator said the public still could reduce the board through referendum, but not until the next election in April 2012.
