Failing Sound and Voting System Due for Replacement

At one time, a voting and sound system replacement in La Crosse city council chambers was hailed as a movement towards sustainability.  That's because the system, which cost tens of thousands of dollars just a few years ago, saved 50% on energy costs over what it replaced.  But that was before the system began to fail in a variety of ways.  Now, the city says, the prized measure of sustainability is broken beyond fixing.  No parts available.  A new one is needed.  The city council will decide next month on whether to spend up to 125 thousand dollars on a replacement.
