WAUSAU - An application for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) was approved Thursday night when the Wausau Town Council met in regular session.
The town will be applying for $600,000 to do a neighborhood revitalization project for a community center or refurbishing of the Possum Palace.
The council is required to have the full plans for the project by August. Should the project be funded, it will be two years before funding is provided.
Recreation Director Alyssa Jackson submitted her resignation to the council due to pregnancy. The council accepted the resignation and appointed Joy Hall as interim Recreation Director. Hall will fill the spot until September, pending the upcoming budget and advertisement of the position.
A Request for Proposal from Professional Sattelites was accepted by the council for use of space on the town's water tower. Contract negotiations will be handled by the town's attorney Jeff Carter. Once completed, internet service will be available within two weeks.
Mayor Roger Dale Hagan brought before the council a concern from a resident regarding sex offenders living inside city limits. The council moved to look into surrounding town’s ordinances on the matter before making any decisions in regard to the matter.
Wausau Town Council will meet again in regular session at 6 p.m. on April 12.
