Washington County TDC discusses discontinuing grant program

Published: Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 12:44 PM.

Council Member Gwen March, who also serves on the Vernon City Council, abstained from voting.

Pate, as chairman, broke the tie by voting in favor of the request, which had also been allocated in the TDC budget.

The Wausau event, however, was a new event and was not allocated in this year’s budget, and it was not approved by the TDC members.

The archery event was to be held at Everett’s Hard Labor Creek, so he abstained from voting, and Phillips, March and Richmond voted against funding the Wausau grant request, while Sweeney voted for it.

“I said it before, but I just can’t support one-day events,” Richmond said. “We’re too low on funds.”
