The Wausau Recreation Department has spent several years working to rebuild the community’s rec program for which the town was known and all concerned were proud to see Thursday night that their efforts are paying off.


Wausau Mayor Roger Hagan pointed out that this is the second year in a row they have had a winning team.  “They had a great season,” noted Hagan.  He praised the parents and the coaches who worked diligently with the young ladies.


The Rec Department reported plans are in the works to improve the rec fields and added lights are needed on the fields.


Council members voted 4-0 to give department authorization to move forward with the work.
