$15.7 million. That is the voted on price tag by the La Crosse School Board for a possible fall referendum for a Northside Elementary School. But Superintendent, Randy Nelson says there's a chance it won't make it to the fall ballots.
Nelson and and board have to agree on the referendum by August 24th to make the November 6th General Election. If it is not approved by then, the board then must act by December 11th to make the February 19th primary.

La Crosse's great alternate side parking experiment might not be dead after all. The city council has voted to reconsider getting rid of a controversial ordinance that allowed for a special area around UWL that allowed cars to stay on one side of the road during the winter with drivers only having to move after a special notification from the city. Problem was, nobody moved the cars. After two years, the experiment was largely considered a failure. But the council will take another look at the idea in a month to see whether there's any way to make the plan work that hasn't been tried already.
The La Crosse fire department not only exceeded its overtime budget from last year. The department blew through it. That's among the information we gleaned from a summary of pay and overtime in the city from last year.
