The La Crosse city council will have two appointed representatives before long. Applications are now being accepted to fill the seat resigned by Jim Bloedorn this week. Bloedorn could no longer hold the seat after moving out of the seventh district. The successful applicant will serve out the remainder of Bloedorn's term until April. In May, college freshman Karen Svitovsky was appointed to the fifth district seat on the council to take the seat resigned by Eric Schmidt. Her term also expires next April. Applications for the seventh district seat will be accepted until the 23rd of this month.

The city could spend six figures on an efficiency consultant. The city council's finance committee voted this week to approve the consultant.
Change of plans, for anyone who might want to visit the Salvation Army 'cooling center' in La Crosse tonight...
The county health department tells us that there are technical problems at the Salvation Army, so a different site will be used...14th and Pine, at the United Campus Ministry. There will be cots for about 20 people there. It's not known yet whether a cooling center will be needed again for Friday night.
You are expected to bring bedding and personal medications. NO PETS are allowed. All visitors will be screened with a breathalyzer test.

She says they will modify the events if need be. That depends on the temps and the partcicpants in the events.
