At Tuesday’s meeting, the Eau Claire City Council unanimously approved the 2023 budget. Also approved by the Eau Claire City Council during Tuesday’s meeting, the five-year capital improvement plan for 2023 through 2027.

This includes upgrades to Hobbs Ice Arena and Fairfax Pool. After four years of negotiations, the City Council also approved an expansion at Seven Mile Creek Landfill in the Town of Seymour. The expansion had opposition from people living in the area worried about the sight and the smell.
