Councilman Wants Police to Reconsider Crossing Guard Assignments
Time for another look at crossing guard numbers in La Crosse, perhaps. Police have cut the numbers of guarded intersections in the city down to five for the current school year. But that plan is based on out of date measurements, says city council member Bob Seaquist. He wants another look at a couple of Losey boulevard intersections. Seaquist says there's more kids now living to the east of Losey who could use a crossing guard and the traffic is heavier than when police measured. Police cited tight budgets for the most recent crossing guard cuts.
