Wausau holds public hearing on city budget


People in Wausau shared their thoughts Tuesday evening on the city's proposed budget.

The city held a public hearing about the $77.6 million budget, which does not include any property tax increases.

One council member, Keene Winters, says the budget process has been positive thanks to city officials who found ways to save money.

"I think a lot of credit goes to Michael Loy and the Human Resources department for helping us to put together a no tax increase budget this time," said Winters.

Wausau resident Bruce Trueblood spoke at the public hearing He says he believes there are other ways the city can save money.

"I do think there's still quite a bit of fat that could be trimmed in certain areas of the budget," said Trueblood.

The council is expected to vote on the budget at its next meeting in two weeks.
