Police Study Could Lead to Higher Fines
It may take awhile to get there. But eventually fines and tickets in La Crosse could be much higher. Depends on the outcome on a proposed study that would determine how La Crosse fines stack up against those in comparable cities in the state. Do that study, says city councilman Doug Farmer, but don't be surprised to find that, among other things, the city has enacted ordinances for which a ticket has never been written.
The police department says it wouldn't be able to complete a fine study for several months.
