Snow, Yes. Tickets, No.

A hundred tickets for homeowners could have been written by now in La Crosse. It's been at least a hundred homes this winter that have had their snow-covered walks cleared by the city's contractor. And those property owners are already facing bills for the clearing: $2.50 per foot, plus a fifty dollar administration fee. But, so far, the city has yet to write a single ticket for a messy walk. The city engineer's office tells us, although it's not official policy, with sidewalk tickets they're generally adhering to the "three strikes and you're out" philosophy.
