WAUSAU - The future was the focus of a public forum at the UW-Extension building in Wausau on Wednesday night.
Community members gathered with workers to discuss what the group needs to do to evolve and cater to the next generation of Wisconsinites. They also needed to figure out how the group would move forward with possible budget cuts looming. Less funding for UW-Extension might end up hurting rural areas the most here in Wisconsin.
UW-Extension workers had formed three options going into the meeting, which is one of many around the state. Option one included growing visibility and reach by using online and digital technologies.
