It won't be long before the city of La Crosse has new rules governing billboards in place. But not soon enough to avoid running past the expiration of a 12 month moratorium on electronic signs within the city. City councilman Bob Seaquist wants the moratorium extended so his billboard committee can complete work on new rules for the signs. Not a long extension, he says
The city put a sign moratorium in place last summer after backlash from a big electronic billboard that went up right at the entrance to La Crosse on town of Medary land.

Ledvina said the bids for the projects have all came in under projections. The board, which can approve 2 out of the 3 options, will vote on their final plans at their next meeting in 2 weeks. The monies come from the operational budget and not from a referendum passed a few years ago.

Julian Rowland of Missouri was taken off the Empire Builder at the La Crosse depot this weekend after getting into a fight with a conductor when he couldn't pay for food in the dining car. Rowland also kicked a La Crosse city cop when he resisted arrest.
Judge Ramona Gonzalez told Rowland in court on Monday that they would try to get him on a train to Chicago, so he could use a return ticket to his hometown. The D-A's office proposed a deal for Rowland to plead to resisting arrest, so he could be sent on his way. A charge of disorderly conduct would be dropped, as part of the deal.
Virtually no snow on La Crosse streets this winter; alternate side parking tickets still increased. Police say they wrote a little over 18 thousand alternate side tickets from November through the end of March. The tickets go to cars that are parked on the wrong side of the street after one in the morning. The tickets are ten dollars, more for repeat offenders. The total is up about one percent from last year, though we're told police began to decrease enforcement of the city's alternate side parking rules at the middle of March when it became clear that we'd seen the last of the city's snowfalls for the year.
