Council Approves Fire Department Hiring

By a nearly unanimous vote, the La Crosse city council has approved hiring several new firefighters.   The council heard from many in a packed city council chambers Tuesday night.   Mostly firefighters urged the council to agree to the new hires despite the mayor's objections, suggesting that emergency protection suffers without adequate protection.   The vote does nothing to counteract the mayor's recent order to end overtime spending in the fire department.
