Segway Vote to Bring New Wheels to City Hall

Written by

Don't be surprised to see La Crosse police riding around on their own Segway scooters soon.  A city council committee tonight considers buying three of the scooters that were just the subject of intense scrutiny in city hall this spring.  Two of the new Segways will be used by police and one by the city's public works department.  It was the city's police chief earlier this year who opposed Segways being used either on streets or the sidewalks in downtown La Crosse.  The three Segways will cost the city close to 24 thousand dollars.

Couch Porch Debate Returns

Written by

Couches on porches again the focus of likely debate by the La Crosse city council tonight. A council committee considers a proposal to keep indoor upholstered furniture from being placed on porches, decks and balconies, along with other, similar structures. The council considered the same proposal last month but tabled it after several council members claimed the planned ordinance just didn't make any sense as written. The fire department says the ordinance is necessary as a fire prevention measure.

Quarry in Quandary

Written by

A development project at the old Irish Hills golf course is being put on hold for a while. The city plan commission has delayed action on the subdivision to be called 'The Quarry,' because the county apparently missed a deadline, and will have to make a new application. The new projects in the town of Shelby have been held up because of controversy, partly because the city of La Crosse wants some revenue guarantees.

Parks Boss Lays out Plans for Ball Park Move

Written by

One of La Crosse's busiest intersections is a lousy place for a baseball field. That's what city park director Steve Carlyon has said for years about Powell Park, at the corner of Jackson and West Avenue. Carlyon now has a plan to move the ball diamond from Powell to Isle La Plume, near Kootch Carroll field. He says that would allow the city to develop a specialized playground at Powell.

 

Carlyon says only a handful of communities around the country have such a playground designed for the abilities of kids with autism. The city plan commission reviewed the Isle La Plume plan yesterday.

Obama Visit to Focus on Overtime

Written by

He's coming to talk about the economy and jobs. President Obama's speech this week at UW La Crosse will focus on economic expansion and helping the middle class; specifically about expanding overtime rules for millions more in America, according to Congressman Ron Kind. Democrat Kind says Obama would admit that although progress has been made on the economy, more work needs to be done. Kind has been given some of the credit for helping pass Obama's Pacific trade bill which has been opposed by most Democrats in Congress.

Worst Case: Losey the Detour

Written by

They're hoping they won't need to use a detour. But just in case I-90 gets closed down between La Crosse and West Salem next spring or summer, Losey Boulevard in La Crosse will be used as a detour for Highway 16. The city board of public works approved the detour request today. The highway will be closed in the Nathan Hill area for a few weeks next year, so work crews can make cuts in the hill. The proposed detour would run from Sparta to Westby and then back through La Crosse on Losey.

Sewer-Related Riverfest Traffic Mess

Written by

Much of the water work is done. Now, sewer work is starting for much of the 2nd Street repair project downtown. Alan Borsch from City Hall tells the board of public works that sewer improvements from Vine Street north to La Crosse Street are starting today, and the utility work should be done by the second week of July. The actual reconstruction of 2nd Street will last for another month after that. While the intersection of 2nd and Vine will remain open for cross traffic, State Street will be blocked between Front and 2nd during Riverfest, because of the hotel project at the former Ross building.

Obama Should Have Been in La Crosse Sooner

Written by

Every incumbent president since George H-W Bush has made a stop in La Crosse, and that string of presidential visits will continue this week.  President Barack Obama is scheduled to be in La Crosse on Thursday for an event related to the economy.  Actually, we're told Obama was supposed to be here sooner.  J-D Wine, who heads the La Crosse County Democratic Partym says the president was originally scheduled to be in La Crosse laset week but the visit had to be rescheduled.  Official word of the Obama visit didn't come out until Saturday night.  This would be Obama's first appearance in La Crosse since late in the 2008 campaign, when he spoke in front of the La Crosse Center.

Sixty million dollars. That's the amount that we've been told it may cost to improve La Crosse's water treatment plant in order to comply with regulations limiting phosphorous that goes into the water.  That may be a little high.  But there won't be a complete picture until a consultant to be hired by the city gets through evaluating just what steps the plant needs to take.  The city's public works board this morning will consider contracting with a company from Sheboygan to do just that.  Cost of the contract: $72 thousand.

Milwaukee's Reefer Ticket Model

Written by
Who knew La Crosse was on the cutting edge?  Milwaukee became just the latest city in the state to decriminalize small amounts of pot possession this month.  La Crosse made a similar move four years ago.  Which is exactly the direction the state should be going, says Molly Collins with the Wisconsin ACLU.  She says, after 40 years of a failed drug war, it's time to take a different approach.  Milwaukee's new law decriminalizes all pot possession under 25 grams.  In La Crosse, police only have the option to write a ticket instead of arresting someone possessing pot and the amount is signigicantly lower; just 7 grams.
