Alleys Not in La Crosse Plow Sights
Got an alley? Want the city of La Crosse to plow it? You'll get the same response the guy who asked about that at a public works board meeting this week: Tough luck. City public works director Dale Hexom says it's just impractical to plow the alleys. It would fifty to eighty miles to the five hundred or so that plow drivers already have to tackle after a big snow. Also, because of the profile and width of paved alleys, some additional equipment would be needed. No exceptions, says Hexom. Not even for the guy who went to the public works board this week. He lives off of West Avenue and can't get to his house except through the alley.
