Success for the very first application for an exemption to new rules regarding rental moratoriums in the city of La Crosse. The moratorium went into effect last week and is meant to keep single-family owner occupied homes in the city from getting turned into rental properties. The first exemption goes to a woman who owns a home on the far southside. Not a rental, says the woman, because her relatives who live there don't pay rent.

City Fee Increases Moving Forward

Written by

New, higher inspection fees for plumbing, electrical and HVAC are closer to reality in the city of La Crosse. The city council rules committee has voted to approve a fee schedule first introduced last year. The city planning department was to study the fees and a special committee was created to evaluate whether the fees were in line with other communities. That special committee has met one time and wanted to hold off on the fee increases for 12 months. The full city council votes on the fee increases next week.

Guilty on all four counts...

A jury in La Crosse County declares Jeffrey Lepsch guilty of two murders and other crimes. May's Photo owner Paul Petras and his teenage son A-J were shot to death in the store nearly a year ago, and dozens of products stolen from May's turned up at Lepsch's Minnesota home.  Police were led to Lepsch partly through security videos from the downtown area that appeared to place his Dodge van at the crime scene.  Defense attorneys had argued that the evidence was circumstantial, including a palm print on a display case which the state crime lab traced to Lepsch. Sentencing is set for September 6th.
