Wauwatosa — The Common Council on Tuesday rejected a proposal to reduce its size from 16 aldermen to 10.

The aldermen considered sending the proposal to a committee, which would have recommended whether to hold a voter referendum. But in the end they voted, 11-4, to kill the proposal.

Wauwatosa has two aldermen in each of eight districts, making it the largest city council in Milwaukee County.

The other largest councils are Milwaukee (15 aldermen), Glendale (12) and West Allis (10).
