They're just advisory referendums.  But they're already causing a rift among La Crosse city council members.  The council has approved sending advisory measures to the spring ballot regarding billboards and city council size.  City councilman Jim Bloedorn is upset the issues got pushed through the approval process so quickly

 

 

A binding referendum on hiring a city administrator will also be on the city ballot for April.   Next month, the council will decide whether the mayor's salary gets cut in half if the administrator is approved by voters.

Another Veto Override from La Crosse Council

Written by



A veto from La Crosse mayor Matt Harter in the last year was typically met
by an override by the La Crosse city council.

No difference this year so
far. The council has overturned the veto that mayor made last month on a
special council measure that would have allowed the city to hire a single
temporary replacement firefighter. The mayor vetoed the position because,
as he said, the fire department is already overstaffed.

Snow Could Make It Hard On Ice Fishing

Written by

There's a lot of snow out there and could make things hard on ice fishermen. The blowing snow is going to cover up cracks, weak spots, and 10 inch holes in the ice that you would normally see with the naked eye.

One way to spot a weak spot on the freshly fallen show is to watch for unexplained wet spots on the snow. This would indicate that open water is close by. Also take your spud along and probe the ice in front of you, not only to detect thin ice but holes as well. Those 10 inch holes have been known to break ankles in the past.

City Reminder to Clear Sidewalks

Written by

It was more than a month ago, when La Crosse's engineering department sent out an advisory reminding people in the city to clear their walks of snow or risk fines. The department has dusted off that advisory and re-posted it. Failure to clear walks 24 hours after the snowfall could mean the city does it for you, charging $2.50 a foot and billing you a fifty dollar administration fee on top of that.  The city says inspections will begin on Tuesday, the 17th.

Wisconsin Meat To Be Sold Outside State

Written by

(AP) Governor Scott Walker has authorized state agriculture officials to amend meat inspection rules and allow Wisconsin's specialty meat plants to sell their products across state lines for the first time. Currently, only meatfrom plants inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture can be sold across state lines.

Amending the state rules will incorporate new federal regulations and allow meat from state-inspected plants to be sold across the border. The rule changes are subject to a public hearing and need final approval from the Legislature. Wisconsin has about 275 state-inspected meat plants and about 145 federally-inspected plants. Larger meat producers have been able to ship across state lines for years. Their plants are reviewed by federal inspectors, unlike the smaller plants that are checked by state inspectors.

Storm Claims Lives 2 In Iowa

Written by

(AP) At least two people have died in traffic accidents in Iowa as a winter storm ends a stretch of spring-like temperatures. The storm entered western Iowa on Wednesday and pushed into eastern Iowa on Thursday, where up to 6 inches of snow could fall before the storm moves out of the state Thursday night. The Iowa State Patrol says 62-year-old Randall Jones, of Henderson, died in a head-on crash near Malvern in Mills County late Wednesday afternoon. Another person died in an accident near Muscatine Thursday morning. Both wrecks are believed to be related to the weather. Dubuque was one of the several Iowa cities that posted a record high on Wednesday with 52 degrees. The temperature Thursday morning was 14 degrees with a wind chill of 3 below zero.

GAB To Look At Recall Signatures

Written by

(AP) The review of signatures submitted seeking a recall election of Gov. Scott Walker will take longer than the 60 days originally planned. The director of the Government Accountability Board which is charged with handling the review said Thursday that it's not clear how long it will take, but it will be more than 60 days.

Board director Kevin Kennedy says more time is needed in order to do a more extensive review of the signatures to look for duplicates and obvious fakes as ordered by a judge last week. Kennedy says the board will proceed with the review next week even if the state decides to seek an appeal. Petition circulators have also sought a stay in the judge's order. Recall petitions are due Tuesday.

La Crosse is on the verge of losing more taxable property to a tax exemption.  The city council tonight could decide the fate of a potential Goodwill store that could move into part of the former southside Quillin's store.  Sure, that will cost the city in taxes, says Goodwill board chair, Greg Curry.  But it also adds to the city in other ways.  Like employment training

 

 

Goodwill needs approval from the council to split the property that the old Quillin's sits on.  Curry says, if they don't get that permission, the board just might buy the whole thing.
