EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Eau Claire city leaders reflected on the “State of the City” Friday morning, along with taking a look at what’s to come.
City Council President, Terry Weld, and City Manager, Stephanie Hirsh, led the “Eggs and Issues” event Friday morning. City and business leaders discussed highlights for 2022, and potential upcoming challenges in 2023.
City Council members say some of their biggest challenges are housing supply and affordability.
