Life Saving Ideas for Riverside Stilll Open for Discussion
New ladders at the Riverside Park levee in La Crosse? That's what one local business owner has suggested to help make the city's riverfront safer. But city parks boss Steve Carlyon says maybe the ladders that are already in place at the levee would be good enough. Although Carlyon likes the idea of marking the ladders somehow so that they're more visible. Another idea is to put life rings or throw buoys at the edge of the park. Carlyon says he's a little skeptical of that idea because it takes some training to use a life ring property. But, he says, he'll continue to research the idea.
