WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – The boards of Wausau Area Events and Main Street Wausau have changed how both organizations are run, and appointed a new director.
River District president Joe Mella says Kari Rassmussen has accepted the directorship of Wausau Area Events after serving as the events coordinator for several years. She'll be joined in promoting Wausau's downtown with whoever is hired as director of Main Street Wausau.
Mella says the position used to be held by Leah Alters, but it was determined late last year that having one person running both organizations was too much to ask of one person.
Both boards made the decision to change the structure last year, and were prepared to offer Rassmussen the job of Wausau Area Events director and Alters the directorship of the Main Street.
That job has now been posted for applications.
