Onalaska Committee Hears Testimony On Prayer
The Onalaska judiciary and administration committee heard quite a bit of public comment last night on prayers before council meetings but in the end, voted to send the proposal without a recommendation to the full city council. The idea of prayer before council meetings was brought to light last month by Council member Jack Pogreba.
Committee members Diane Wulf and Erik Sjolander both said they could not back the idea but councilman, Dan Ferries said he would support the idea. All 3 said they could possibly consider a moment of silence or reflection before a city council meeting. No votes were taken last night and the committee, without recommendation, moved to pass it on to the full council and Mayor Joe Chilsen.
The Onalaska city council will consider the proposal at it's meeting next Tuesday night.

The current Cowley science building dates back to the mid-60's.
