    WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) -- The City of Wausau is in the process of receiving Requests for Proposals or RFP's for parcels located along phase one of the Thomas Street project that was completed last year.  Chris Schock, Economic Development Director for the city, says he's expecting a good mix of proposals for the parcels.  "I think Thomas Street, even before the project, was mixed use in a lot of ways," said Schock. "There were institutional buildings. There were businesses. There were homes and other things along the corridor. We expect the same kind of urban mix of different uses along the new corridor." "I could see small businesses, entrepreneurs, (and) some housing, all being marketable on these parcels," he continued. Schock says he believes the parcels will be a hot commodity for many reasons. He said, "Obviously, the corridor has a heavy traffic count. It's right in the heart of the city. There's a lot of other thriving businesses around it. So, I could see different activities coming from that." Schock also says that the city would be open to a developer wanting to develop two or three parcels at once for a larger project as well.  Requests will be taken until February 2nd. Schock says the city council will be the driving force behind the proposals and will review each one of them. Phase 2 of the Thomas Street project is still being discussed, with another public information meeting coming up later this month.

  • Jury convicts driver in fatal crashJury convicts driver in fatal crash

    STEVENS POINT, WI (WSAU-WAOW) - A Portage County jury convicted a Bancroft man in a crash that killed his friend three years ago. 59-year-old Scott Sawyer was found guilty of negligent homicide. He was acquitted of a more serious charge of reckless homicide. The jury deliberated for just 30 minutes before reaching a verdict. Sawyer could get up to 10 years in prison. He'll be sentenced on March 22.  Sawyer was driving his new 2014, 450-horsepower Ford Mustang, spinning the back tires so they made black marks on the road, when it went out of control and into a ditch before rolling over, killing 52-year-old Gregory Turner. District Attorney Louis Molepske Jr. said Sawyer created more than 400 feet of “burnout” on the highway, traveled 250 feet in the wrong lane and “never once tried to lift his foot off the gas or press the brake” as the Mustang fishtailed over the road before Turner was ejected 40-feet before the vehicle came to a stop. The crash happened April 4, 2015 on County Highway W.

    MERRILL, WI (WSAU) -- Lincoln County Sheriff Jeff Jaeger announced on Tuesday that he will not seek a fourth term during the 2018 fall election. “This has been a difficult decision to make given my passion for the job and the great relationships and friendships I have developed over the years. We have achieved so many successes over the last 11 years I have served as your Sheriff,” said Jaeger in a release. Jager listed his accomplishments in three terms as increased focus on illegal drug dealers leading to unprecedented indictments and convictions, the development of two K-9 teams, equipping and training of Deputies to meet present day challenges, and establishment of core values that respect the principles of Lincoln County Citizens and visitors. He went on to add the implementation of countless cost saving measures and increased revenue endeavors leading to efficiencies and responsible spending of tax payer dollars as well. Through the release Jaeger also endorsed Senior Patrol Lieutenant Ken Schneider as his replacement. “Ken is a good honest man with great values and a love for people. He understands the utmost importance of public trust and has been a leader for this agency in so many capacities. He is very well liked and respected in the law enforcement community and I feel good about his ability to lead this organization.” Jaeger has served in law enforcement for 38 years including three terms as Sheriff of Lincoln County. He went on to thank everyone who has been an important part of his career, including his wife Tracey and the rest of his family. He also thanked the entire staff at Lincoln County for their support and all the law enforcement agencies for their assistance and cooperation through his term as Sheriff. “I have been so blessed in so many ways in this career and I thank God every day for that. It has been an absolute privilege and honor to be your Sheriff,” said Jaeger.

  • 'Nuisance snows,' frigid temps, challenge snow removal efforts on local streets'Nuisance snows,' frigid temps, challenge snow removal efforts on local streets

    MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) -- Keeping streets clear during a Wisconsin winter is always a tall order, but according to street superintendent Mike Winch in Marshfield, this winter's conditions have been especially challenging.  "There's been a lot of concern from some residents calling in.  Why are we not plowing.  Why are we plowing.  What's going on out there as far as road conditions," Winch said this week.   Even though there haven't been any major snow storms yet, Winch says the ongoing series of 'nuisance snows' coupled with the recent frigid temperatures have kept the roads in almost constant need of attention.  "What we're running into is these nuisance snowfalls of under 2" that start to accumulate, and then we ended up plowing even though it wasn't a snowfall event with an actual 2" or above in one event" Winch explained.   The most recent plowing cycle was a great example of the ongoing constant challenge of this year's weather, and its cost in time and money.  "They started salting at 6:00 and got done at 10 p.m.  And then we started calling in the plow crew, the full plow crew at 3:30 this morning.  And they plowed, and we sent them back out and they plowed again, and then we re-applied salt," Winch told Marshfield's Board of Public Works Monday night.   Especially at the colder temperatures that we've been experiencing salt doesn't work as well, so Marshfield's been experimenting with a new cost-effective man-made product called "Amp" according to Winch.  "Each case is different. I mean when you get lower temperatures and you can't get the salt to work, the "Amp" has been helping with that."   During recent weather events, it's cost between $6500 and $8500 to treat Marshfield streets with salt or other materials, while both treating and plowing the streets averages just under $32,000 per event.   This is Winch's last couple of weeks on the job after more than 37 years with Marshfield's Street Department.  He'll be retiring in February.

    WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) – The life and legacy of Dr Martin Luther King Jr. was celebrated at the Wausau YWCA Monday with a dinner hosted by NAOMI, People for the Power of Love, The Women’s Community, and the YWCA. Keynote speaker Christopher Norfleet said the goal of his message was simple. “We’re trying to reignite and reinvigorate a passion for equality and change.” Norfleet says in what seems like a racially divided culture, the important thing is to listen in a way to find common ground. “The one thing I would like people to ask themselves is, is their inclusion selfless? Are you just talking because you’re right? Or are you talking because you want a solution?” He says to often in today’s culture we are talking past each other instead of talking to each other. Norfleet also spoke about how he thinks we can best honor the life and legacy of Dr King, who would have been 86 years old on Monday. You can hear his thoughts in the video above. Prayer, readings, and dances from both the Latin and Hmong culture were also part of the evening.

  • SAFER Ambulance rates set to increaseSAFER Ambulance rates set to increase

    VILLAGE OF WESTON, WI (WSAU) -- The SAFER fire and ambulance district is set to increase some of their transport rates for ambulance service following a vote from the Village of Weston’s Board of Trustees. Most rates would jump by $50 if approved. Ambulance mileage would also increase from $13.50 to $15 for a resident call and $16 to $16.50 for a non-resident. Deputy Fire Chief Josh Finke says the increases are due in part to the cost of doing business and a recommendation from their billing partners. “They recommend fees we should be charging based on other ambulance services in our general area. We use those rates as part of the process. The other part is based on what our actual costs are.” Those who live in the SAFER service area will see the smallest increases, Finke says that’s because as tax payers they already help fund the services. Rates for non-residents will go up as much as $100. “The people that come into our area from out of town or states. Those particular patients don’t already pay into the system the way the tax payers do.” For example, the rate for a resident BLS emergency call would go from $625 to $675. A non-resident BLS emergency is scheduled to go from $750 to $850. In all some 12 fees will be adjusted if the measure is approved. The finance committee has already given their approval, it’s now up to the village board to give their blessing. No matter the cost Finke notes that most people would not be billed for the charges directly. In most cases they are handled by insurance or services like Medicare or Badger-care. “We send everything through our billing company and they will always do everything they can to bill through the insurance companies.”

    MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) -- In Marshfield, the city is gearing up for a change-over to new automated garbage and recycling carts, and starting this week Marshfield homeowners will be receiving a postcard in the mail asking them to select the cart sizes that best fit their needs.  The standard 'default' size is a 96-gallon cart but if that's too big for your garage, director of public works Dan Knoeck says homeowners can go online or mail back their postcard to choose a smaller 35 or 65-gallon size, but they'll need to place their order by February 4th.   Each residence will need to select the sizes for two carts, one each for recycling and refuse.    "So we'll have that available for a two or three week period, and then in February that time period will close," Knoeck explained.  "Carts will be ordered and then they'll be delivered in early April sometime."   Carts will be displayed at several locations around the city so that residents can actually see which size would work best for them.  According to Knoeck, "We'll have sample carts available at City Hall, at the Library, and out at the Advance Disposal office for people to come in and see the various sizes."   After residents get their carts in early April, full implementation of the new automated collection program is expected to start on April 30th.  The actual roll-out of the new system is being planned to coincide with the expected start of favorable spring weather.     You can select your cart sizes online at www.MarshfieldAds.com.
