We've heard for quite some time now that Holmen needs a new library and it's in the works. But Village President, Nancy Proctor, says that's not the only thing needed right now.
And with a $10 million budget set by the village board recently and demolition of some property on tap for this summer......a new police station and new public works garage are all beyond just a vision now for village leaders.

As the La Crosse school district continues to hammer away at creating a new employee handbook, not only are the t's being crossed and the I's dotted....but single words are getting attention.
Superintendent Randy Nelson, says working back and forth with the La Crosse Education Association to make sure everything is out in the open for teachers and staff though the process...has been the biggest help.
It's a busy week in the La Crosse County Clerk's office this week. Besides training for the upcoming recall elections. Clerk Ginny Denkmeyer explains what else has to be done before May 8th.
The recall elections will target against Governor Scott Walker, Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and four Republican state senators.
Unemployment, lack of education, having a single parent in a home...
All of those conditions can be factors leading to child abuse. And two family service agencies in La Crosse are working together on a program to deal with those risk factors. Mike Boehm, the CEO of the Family and Children's Center, says only about one-third of the local families that could use those services can get access to them now.
The "Partnership for Families" also includes the Parenting Place on Green Bay Street in La Crosse. The project will help those organizations visit the homes of families where children could face abuse.
