YWCA/WTC Enter Into An Agreement
The YWCA of the Coulee Region will announce a partnership Tuesday morning with Western Technical College that will keep affordable and accessible child care in downtown La Crosse. It will be at the future YWCA Child Center located on Western Technical College’s La Crosse campus.
Mary Kay Wolf, executive director of the YWCA of the Coulee Region says the Y has a long history of child care and nationally the program is common place for their organization. She says this was excellent timing to bring child care back into the YWCA programming mix after some time without it.
The YWCA Child Center will open August 22nd under the direction of the YWCA. The center will continue to serve as a clinical site for Early Childhood Education students at Western. Enrollment for fall is being accepted.
The WTC board, back in January, voted to close the center.

Mobil Site Clean-up Depends on City Plans
Someday, what was once known as the Mobil Oil site in La Crosse could be the city's grand new development.
But that someday seems quite a ways away. The city council this month will consider hiring a consultant to help deal with environmental clean-up at the former industrial site between Copeland avenue and the Black River. But that might be premature. The DNR tells us that the city will have to come up with a plan for what it wants to do with the site before a plan for environmental clean-up by Exxon-Mobil can be created. Just now the city is beginning the process of planning for use. Basically, the DNR tells us, Exxon-Mobil is on the hook for clean-up. But the company isn't sure how much clean-up it will have to do.
