Car Fire Fee Future Uncertain

Written by
A car fire fee may or may not go into place in the West Salem fire district after a vote this week by the village board.  The board voted down the proposed five hundred dollar car fire fee on Tuesday after an appeal by the volunteer fire department which contends, among other things, the fee will discourage people from calling about a car fire until it's too late.  The fire district board along with the towns of Barre and Hamilton have already approved the fee, however, so it's unclear whether it will still take effect despite the West SAlem village board vote.  The fee would only be charged for those car fires that occur along state-maintained highways.

Weeks Pile Up for Suspended La Crosse Employees

Written by
Today marks six weeks since a couple of high level city employees in La Crosse were escorted from city hall.  Municipal prosecutor Pete Kisken and Community development administrator Liana Escott have been on paid administrative leave since May 24th.  The city won't say why the two have been suspended, only that the case remains under investigation.  Kisken is still listed as the municipal prosecutor on the city's website.  Escott, however, is not listed.  The two will continue to receive full compensation while suspended, none of which will have to be returned.

Garbage Contractor Fine With New Rules

Written by

La Crosse's garbage hauler says he's okay with the city's new trash rules.   Gary Harter owns Harter's Quick Clean Up.  He thinks the newly adopted regulations will keep the city cleaner and he doesn't even mind the new mandate for all garbage to be in containers

 

 

Besides the new container-only rule, the city also has new restrictions on how many large items can get tossed out at once and prohibits scavenging without permission.

The Holmen Fire Department has imposed a burn ban until further notice...

It affects an area of 84 square miles, including a large part of Lake Onalaska.  Fire chief Doug Schober says open burning, including campfires and burn barrels, will be prohibited until the Holmen area gets significant rain for a day or two.  Limits will be put on outdoor cooking fires.

One week after the Supreme Court upheld the 'Obamacare' law, the bill and the court decision remain major topics that could affect the November elections.

Democrat Tammy Baldwin stands out as the one U-S Senate candidate in Wisconsin supporting the health care law. Baldwin campaigned at Riverfest in La Crosse on the 4th of July.  She claims that the four Republicans running against her for Herb Kohl's Senate seat would all like to overturn the court ruling and repeal Obamacare...which is one reason she hopes to win the election.
