Wausau leaders recommend pet rule change

The Wausau Public Health and Safety Committee voted Monday to recommend changing the rules for pet owners.

According to Chairperson Lisa Rasmussen, the board voted 3-2 to allow current homeowners to apply for a permit to house up to five pets.

That includes any combination of cats and dogs.

This comes after one Wausau family was found in violation of the current pet ordinance. Melissa Lecker and her family have four dogs, two more than the city allows.

According to city rules, anyone with more than two dogs could face a fine.

This decision is not final. The full city council is scheduled to vote on the issue in June.
