Two Big Issues Discussed at City Council Meeting

Wausau city leaders agreed to end all discussions about bringing a casino to the area, after the proposal was soundly defeated by voters in last week's referendum.

But an issue they're moving forward on is a plan to combine area fire departments and emergency services into one big metro department.
