Override of Mayor's Veto
It took just a couple of days for the La Crosse city council to override the latest veto from Mayor Matt Harter. Harter had Tuesday vetoed a development deal between the city and Kwik Trip, citing concerns about the city using public money to help specific businesses succeed. The city council voted Thursday to override that veto by a vote of 13-2. Jim Bloedorn and Doug Farmer were the only council members who voted to sustain the veto.
