MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU)   -  Marshfield’s Common Council will host a special joint meeting Tuesday night with the city’s Police and Fire Commission.

City administrator Steve Barg they’ll be discussing how they can improve the way they work together under the city’s system of ‘optional power.’ Barg says they’ll start by defining, “the rightful roles of the Police and Fire Commission, and then compare that with the rightful role of the Council which is largely in this case going to be financial, administrative, those types of oversights.”

Barg says that joint meetings of this type could happen on a bi-annual basis in the future. That meeting starts at 7:00 Tuesday night in the Council Chambers of Marshfield City Hall.
