Police Use Public Nuisance Law to Tackle Problem Properties

Utilizing a new ordinance, La Crosse police have ticketed three properties in the city as public nuisances because of the number of police calls at those properties.   Jason Devine lives next to one of those properties--an eight-plex--on fourth street.  We asked him if he thought the city's action would make a difference



The public nuisance tickets are over seven hundred dollars.  With charges tacked on for additional police calls.
