Bigger Cut In Onalaska Bus Service Proposed
Onalaska's mayor doesn't think so. Mike Giese says the city council voted last night to reduce funding for the M-T-U another eight-thousand dollars beyond what he's willing to cut. And he says that doesn't amount to much on the average property tax bill...just over a dollar. To sacrifice bus service for such small savings, he believes, would be "foolish."
Giese tells us the current version of the Onalaska budget for 2011 would shorten M-T-U service in his city by six hours a day. The budget gets another hearing on November 8th.
