Most cities the size of La Crosse, or larger, charge you by the hour to park your car in a ramp.
La Crosse will start using ticket gates in its downtown ramps by April...but parking will still be free for the first four hours during the week, and the first eight hours on weekends. Bob Haines of the city public works office admits that the city is being generous by not charging drivers as soon as they enter the ramps. Haines tells us the long grace period may keep parking revenue down. He thinks the ramps will generate about 25-thousand dollars a year for City Hall.

The dispute over voter ID in Wisconsin goes back to the appeals courts...
The state Supreme Court has decided not to rule on the ID law. And for local election officials like La Crosse County clerk Ginny Dankmeyer, it means conducting elections the same way they've been doing things already.
With the law being blocked by lower-court judges, Wisconsin voters still do not have to show an ID at the polls when they vote.
Voters in Holmen spoke out about fluoridation five years ago...and they may be asked to speak out again.
The Holmen Village Board has scheduled a special meeting this Thursday...to discuss the possibility of a new referendum on putting fluoride in the water. Just last week, the board voted to resume the fluoridation that was temporarily halted two years ago. The special meeting is being requested by two of those board members who called for a halt to fluoridation...which was approved in a 2008 referendum.
