Bigger Cut In Onalaska Bus Service Proposed

Are the savings enough to justify cutting bus service?

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.
