MADISON (WKOW) -- Mayor Paul Soglin says he's concerned about how services in the city of Madison will be affected by a continued federal government shutdown.
Mayor Soglin says right now, no critical services are compromised, but things could change if the shutdown persists another few weeks.
The mayor says he's worried about a widespread impact on the economy, with fewer workers getting paychecks and he's concerned about a bigger risk locally. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides federal funding with the community development block grant.
The city's public housing developments, which are home to thousands in Madison, could be at risk.
