Alternate Side Parking Exemption Showing Signs of Life
Despite recommendations against it, a city council committee has agreed to keeping an alternate side parking exemption in place around UW La Crosse. Among those who urged the council to ditch the exemption program has been interim police chief Rob Abraham. He's got plenty of reasons. Safety's a big one
Critics say the wintertime exemption doesn't work because people in the area never get around to moving their cars when notified to do so. The full city council will vote on the exemption next week.
