Expert Says Low Housing Values Should Influence Mayoral Discussion
What should La Crosse mayoral candidates be talking about? We've heard about trimming bushes as a way to fight crime. Creating an alternate local currency. Fixing the city's bookkeeping system.

Especially how those values relate to taxes
Green's housing study highlighted specific areas to deal with property values. He says he's seen some recent progress in addressing those.
