The council turned down the proposal to help a Wausau business tear down an old Wausau area school.
Olson Tire and Auto asked the city of Wausau to supply part of the funding for the demolition of Stettin Elementary School.
The council voted it down 5 to 6.
Some council members say the business should find a different way to finance the project, such as asking for a loan.
Leaders from Olson Tire and Auto did not speak during the council meeting.
