Worried about weeds taking over your neighbor's yard?  Thinking it's time somebody did something about that old mattress in the alley?  Want to give an attaboy for the fine job city of La Crosse employees are doing on a daily basis?   There's now a central place to do all of that.  The city has a link on its website for you to "report a concern."  It's a service that's apparently been available for months but, the planning department tells us, the community apparently didn't know about it.   The "report a concern" site is a link on the sidebar of the city's website, listed under "Interest Items."

Access to Bliss road again about to be a problem in La Crosse.  Burlington Northern will shut down the railroad crossing at Main Street on Monday for a few days in order to reconstruct the crossing.  Traffic will still be able to get up the bluff at Bliss road, getting there by a Cass street detour.  Bliss road, the city's only direct access to Grandad Bluff Park, was shut down for more than a year after a washout in 2010.  The road reopened to traffic last fall.  No word yet on why Burlington Northern waited until this spring to do the crossing work.

Brownfield Grant from DNR is Start for La Crosse

Written by

A quarter of a million dollar grant to help clean up part of an industrial property in La Crosse is a start.   But that money isn't even close to the amount that could be needed to cover total cleanup costs for a site of future possible development.  The city has landed 250 thousand in a DNR brownfields grant to help cleanup contaminated soil at the former Patros Steel Property.   That's about half what would be needed for that 12-acre property between the Black River and Copeland avenue.  But it's also a small portion of the millions that are estimated to be needed to deal with all of the contamination at what is commonly known as the Mobil Oil property.   The city has been negotiating with Exxon Mobil for years to pay a portion of the clean-up at the site.

A dispute over who shot Sara Hougom...

Two men arrested this month for the March murder of Hougom appeared together in La Crosse County court today. One suspect, Kong Vue, told police that he shot the young woman in her apartment...but the other, Pao Vue, reportedly told people in the county jail that he was the shooter. A judge heard testimony today from La Crosse police, and from a man recently released from jail. That man, Lucas Brickl, says Pao Vue would watch TV stories in jail about Hougom's death and claim that he shot or killed her. The two defendants will be back in court on May 21st to enter 'not guilty' pleas.

District Sees More Say Goodbye

Written by

Last year, the La Crosse School District saw 83 employees either retire or resign. So far this year...that number is at 63....with 32 added to that list Monday night. With impending budget cuts and possible layoffs coming, we asked District Human Resources Director, Steve Salerno, if these positions will be filled.

Salerno says he just came back from a recruitment fair in Madison and the line of applicants at their table was longer then any other school there. How many total positions that will be filled.....unknown at this time.
