Council May Stick at 17 Members
There's been times in the past when the city of La Crosse council districts and the county board districts in the city did not match up. May happen again soon. The city council's redistricting committee is recommending to the full council to stay at 17 members. This comes after the county board voted to shrink its size from 35 to 29 members, eliminating 4 districts in the city of La Crosse. Because of complications during elections, the city was under pressure to also cut four. The full council could vote on the issue this month.
