Loggers Juggling Success and Uncertainty

Written by
Midway through the season, the La Crosse Loggers are flying high, securing the first half pennant in the Northwoods league.   After the season, things might get more interesting.  The city and the Loggers recently agreed to a lease extension for Copeland Park so the team can continue playing there next season.   Negotiations for an agreement to go beyond that likely will begin after the current season is over.  Meanwhile, nothing has been firmed up about the possibility of the UWL baseball team using the park as their home field.  A partnership between the Loggers and UWL was announced this spring, but the city would have to approve and has yet to discuss an arrangement with the university.

Council Accepting Applications to Fill Seat

Written by
The La Crosse city council will have two appointed representatives before long.  Applications are now being accepted to fill the seat resigned by Jim Bloedorn this week.  Bloedorn could no longer hold the seat after moving out of the seventh district.  The successful applicant will serve out the remainder of Bloedorn's term until April.  In May, college freshman Karen Svitovsky was appointed to the fifth district seat on the council to take the seat resigned by Eric Schmidt.  Her term also expires next April.  Applications for the seventh district seat will be accepted until the 23rd of this month.

Committee Approves Efficiency Consultant

Written by

There's going to many taxpayers who don't warm to the idea of spending big money on a consultant to help the city of La Crosse find cost savings.  Nevertheless, says city council member Andrea Richmond, it should be done.  And she's not the only who feels that way.  She says the idea gets brought up by the city's auditor on an annual basis

 

 

The city could spend six figures on an efficiency consultant.  The city council's finance committee voted this week to approve the consultant.

Change of plans, for anyone who might want to visit the Salvation Army 'cooling center' in La Crosse tonight...

The county health department tells us that there are technical problems at the Salvation Army, so a different site will be used...14th and Pine, at the United Campus Ministry. There will be cots for about 20 people there. It's not known yet whether a cooling center will be needed again for Friday night.

You are expected to bring bedding and personal medications. NO PETS are allowed. All visitors will be screened with a breathalyzer test.

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.
