City Bills for Dozens of Sidewalks
Little chance of snow sticking on the ground very long now. Not with temps in the thirties and forties this week. But there was plenty of snow this season in the city of La Crosse. And that means plenty of opportunities for city crews to tackle sidewalks left uncleared. 104 sidewalks this winter were cleared by those crews and the landowners billed for the service at $2.50 per foot plus a $50 administrative fee. And, although the engineering department can write tickets to go along with the clearing charge, no such tickets were written.
