Ethics Board to Meet on Mayor's Request
Months later, the La Crosse city Ethics Board will finally meet. A meeting has been scheduled for next Thursday for the board. Members will consider a request from Mayor Matt Harter to deliver a confidential opinion of his actions regarding a meeting with the La Crosse county solid waste director and Harter's father. That meeting occurred in February. Harter said two months ago that he would convene the ethics board in order to get that opinion. No ethics complaint against the mayor has been filed. Meanwhile an outside legal opinion on the issue has been asked for by a city council member.
