Complaint Filed and Council Still in Dark About Kisken
Growing frustration is what we're hearing from the La Crosse city council. Council members we've contacted say they can't discuss the ongoing administrative leave of municipal prosecutor Pete Kisken and community development administrator, Leanna Escott. But those same council members have expressed frustration with the amount of money that's been paid to the pair since they were escorted from city hall back in May. No one on the council seems to know what's behind the leave or why it continues without action. Mayor Matt Harter says he can't comment on the case. Kisken has filed a complaint with the state's labor department and his attorney, Micheal Fox tells us Kisken has never been informed why he was put on administrative leave.
