Route Reduction Proposed To Save MTU in Ona
He's hoping a cut in 'nine' saves the line...
Onalaska Mayor Mike Giese offers a budget-cutting idea that could keep the M-T-U running in his city. The mayor's executive budget, presented to the Onalaska council last night, would reduce the schedule for M-T-U bus Number Nine by three hours a day, which could save eight thousand dollars a year. That's the bus which serves Highway 35, and downtown Onalaska. The council voted in August to eliminate all bus service for 2011, in hopes of saving 50-thousand dollars. The budget will be reviewed at city meetings next week.
