WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – Wausau has settled a land dispute with a Weston couple over three properties in the path of a possible intersection expansion at Grand Avenue and Thomas Street.
The City Council approved an agreement Tuesday night to settle the case involving Steve and Jodene Meinel out of court.
The Meinels had appealed the eminent domain award the city paid them for their properties last August. Tuesday’s agreement gives the couple the award plus $55,000.
The city is withholding the award amount until the state transportation department approves the agreement.
