Harter Vetoes Added Firefighter Job
Another veto from La Crosse's mayor...
This time, Mayor Matt Harter is rejecting the city council's plan to add a temporary firefighter position. In his veto message, Harter says he thinks the fire department is overstaffed, and he wants to reduce the minimum staff levels for the department. The mayor says any changes to the fire department size should wait until after an operations review committee completes a study of firefighting in La Crosse.
