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

City Reminder to Clear Sidewalks
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.
