Tens of Thousands in Fire Fees Collected

Written by

There was plenty of grousing when a vast list of new fees went into effect for the city of La Crosse at the beginning of the year.  But those fees have meant a surge in revenue for some departments.  The fire department, which began collecting new fees for everything from fire pits to false alarms on January first, has padded the city's coffers with tens of thousands of dollars.  The recreational fire pit permit alone has generated 23 thousand dollars.  A fire inspection fee for businesses has brought in 67 thousand dollars so far this year.  Those fees can range from about a hundred dollars for the smallest businesses to several hundred dollars.

A 23-year-old man has been treated for a bullet wound in the back, and an older man is accused of the shooting.

A 22-caliber rifle was seized at the Charles home near Taylor, along with some marijuana.

Many bars and restaurants fought against smoke-free dining laws for Wisconsin...

But a new statewide survey shows that people working at those businesses feel healthier now because of the two-year-old tobacco ban. La Crosse County health educator Judi Zabel says restaurant and bar staffers have said they're happy not to go home with smoky-smelling clothes.  The survey also shows that only one-third of Wisconsin residents are now exposed to smoke outside the home. The percentage was over 50 per cent when the law took effect.
