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.

An apparent fight over growing marijuana may have led to a shooting last night in Jackson County...

A 23-year-old man has been treated for a bullet wound in the back, and an older man is accused of the shooting. Sixty-one-year-old Michael Charles of the town of Franklin is being held without bond in the Jackson County Jail, on a charge of endangering safety. A 22-caliber rifle was seized at the Charles home near Taylor, along with some marijuana. Sheriff's officers say Charles was upset with the shooting victim for going to a place where marijuana was being grown.

Written by
