UPDATE: Wausau city council votes to designate 400 block a park

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Wausau city leaders voted Tuesday night to designate the 400 block as a city park.

The change means people will be allowed to carry alcohol. It will also institute hours of operation like at other city parks.

Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple says the change will spell out what can and cannot happen on the block, giving police more power to enforce those rules. He also says it will open the block to more opportunities.

"I think it's going to open up a whole lot of ideas, different uses for the block," said Tipple. "What we want to do is program that thing 365 days a year if we could, and we're already getting ideas."

The change takes effect immediately.
