Delay In Billboard Condemnation Suit
A big billboard battle in La Crosse won't be settled today, or even this week...
County Judge Elliott Levine apologized to attorneys for Collins Outdoor Advertising and the city of La Crosse for delaying a final ruling in a condemnation trial that happened in November. Levine wants another month to consider documents in the case. City Hall tried to condemn a hotel billboard on the Causeway, so a competing hotel could be built on the spot. Collins accused the city of coming up with a phony reason to get rid of the sign, which is still in place.
