More money from ramps than expected

Written by

Drivers parking in the downtown La Crosse ramps are giving much more money to the city than expected. The revenue collected through the pay stations in the ramps is already two-thirds of the way to this year's goal, only halfway through 2015. Through the end of June, 72-thousand dollars was collected in parking fees at the ramp gates. That's compared to the 108-thousand dollars predicted in the city budget. Over a million dollars has been generated this year through parking fees and tickets...also well ahead of expectations.

Voters approve Caledonia pool

Written by

A big vote proved to be positive for many in Caledonia Thursday. Voters there approved spending up to $1 million for a new municipal swimming pool. The margin of victory was just 19 votes.

According to city leaders who will meet in special Monday night, plans are to construct a new pool at the site of the old pool. A failed referendum earlier this year was for $1.6 million but that was lowered when some of the plans were eliminated. The approved plan also calls for updates to the restroom areas and bath house.

 

The vote came after a similar referendum was turned down by a wide margin by the voters last January.

Associated to close more branches

Written by

Associated Bank is planning to close more branches in Wisconsin.  Even though the company saw its income rise during the second quarter, six Associated locations in the state will be shut down, including one in Eau Claire.  Changes in customer patterns, including greater use of digital banking, are being cited as the reason for the closings.  Associated plans to open a new bank in La Crosse next summer on County Lot C, to take the place of its State Street bank, which will soon become a county office building.

Arcadia mayor says sand mine rumors false

Written by
Arcadia already has one operational frac sand mine. Rumors of three more proposals going to the city council are simply false says Mayor John Kimmel. He tells us he heard the rumors shortly after they appeared in a local newspaper.
 
 
It was rumored that the requests would require the council to drop its moratorium on sand mines and annex over 1500 acres from the Town of Arcadia plus develop a new sand mine zoning ordinance. 
 
 Kimmel says if folks have questions or concerns of more mines being proposed or brought to the city's attention, they are being very transparent in the entire process. Kimmel invites people to go to the city's website and see for themselves. In the meantime, a moratorium on new mines goes until mid-September.

Property taxes shrink statewide

Written by

Not that it's time to call for a property tax victory parade just yet in Wisconsin.  But the state's notoriously high property taxes have taken a turn for the slightly less painful.  A new report from the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance says the state's property tax collections as a whole went down last year for the first time in nearly twenty years.  A drop of over two percent.  Beyond that, the group says property taxes as a percent of income is now at the lowest level since 1946.  While many local governments actually did increase their taxes last year, a cut in the tech school portion of your tax bill is what led to the overall decrease.

Heck: Goodbye to campaign spending limits

Written by
An ugly precedent set by state supreme court justices this week. 
  
That's according to Jay Heck from Wisconsin Common Cause.  He says, with justices ruling an end to a John Doe probe into illegal campaign coordination activity between governor Walker and supporters, the state is looking at a world of full-blown, money-driven politics and will likely see current campaign spending limits openly ignored.
 
 Heck says the decision was also driven by money because the same groups for which majority justices ruled in favor were the ones donating big to get those justices elected in the first place.
 
This is the second secret John Doe probe focused on Walker's campaign activities since he took office.
