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.

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.

How Will You Pay For Parking Downtown?

Written by

The debate over charging drivers to park in downtown La Crosse ramps has reached the sub-committee stage...

A smaller 'rate control' subcommittee of the city Parking Utility Board is looking into automated gate systems, blocking off the upper floors of each ramp unless a driver pays for a space. Bob Haines from the city public works office says the paid spaces will be either leased long-term, or temporary at 50 cents an hour.

Haines says ramp users could pay with coins, tokens, or special cards. He says gate manufacturers frown on paying with dollar bills, because the cash box would become a target for thieves.

Tagger Tagged in La Crosse

Written by
Rembrandt.  Monet.  Da Vinci. Bryant Koscianski isn't any of those guys.  Not even close, say La Crosse police.  The 21 year-old Koscianski has been busted for painting.  Tagging dozens of times, say cops.  They say he's been particularly prolific about his spray-painted graffiti around the city's parking garages.   13 cases.  Thousands in fines.  Cops say they found 150 cans of spray paint at Koscianski's place in Onalaska and a spot where he practiced his graffiti techniques.  Koscianski also faces charges for over a million dollars in tagging damage he's done in Minnesota

City Bans Fireworks for Fourth of July

Written by

That snap, crackle and pop has a little less pizzazz this fourth of July in La Crosse.  The city has banned fireworks because of dry conditions.  Not just the normally illegal fireworks that explode or shoot up into the sky, rockets-red-glare style, but the package of fourth of July poppers from Kmart.  Dry conditions from extreme heat and no rain for a couple of weeks has led the mayor and the fire department to put a ban on all burning outdoors, including fireworks.  The fireworks display shot from Pettibone park in La Crosse will not be affected by the ban and, because it would be almost impossible to do the fourth without burgers, brats and dogs, grilling will also be allowed under the fire ban.

Lights Now, Seats Later For Hollywood Theater

Written by

The revival of the Hollywood Theater in La Crosse could take a couple of years...but the process is taking small steps ahead.

Attorney and businessman Phil Addis first toured the vacant theater three months ago after buying it at auction. Now, he's been able to find which light fixtures are working, including some of the neon and Art Deco fixtures in the lobby.  Addis also has been shopping for new theater seats. He thinks the theater could hold about 600 modern seats, compared to the thousand or so that were removed from the Hollywood years ago.
