7/15/2015 - Wausau Appeals City Law Banning Swearing -
More Information It's no longer against the law to swear in public in Wausau. The City Council voted 9-to-1 last night to repeal an anti-swearing ordinance adopted in 1972. W-A-O-W T-V said it came to the council's attention after somebody got a 50-dollar ticket for using obscene language -- and assistant city attorney Tara Alfonso caught wind of that. She said the ordinance was not enforced very often. Even with the repeal, it still wouldn't be a good idea to yell profanities at the top of your lungs in Wausau. That could still net you a citation for disorderly conduct.
