A decision could be coming soon on when a La Crosse city council meeting might be held to overturn Mayor Matt Harter's latest vetoes. Those trying to call an emergency meeting to vote on override are trying to determine between having the meeting on Monday or Tuesday. Harter vetoed three advisory referendum questions, keeping them from the spring ballot. The council has to overturn by Tuesday in order to get those questions on the ballot. The referendum questions involve billboards and city council size. Among other reasons, Harter says he vetoed the referendum questions because voters have enough to consider with a binding referendum on a city administrator already at the polls.
A Sparta man is in a La Crosse hospital with life threatening injuries after being involved in an officer related shooting last night in Sparta. The shooting happened just after 10 Thursday night in the 400 block of Austin Street. Sparta police officers were responding to a 911 hang-up call.
The La Crosse County Board will spend $5000 towards a study of the I-90 Exit 3 corridor, but not every one on the board agreed with the plan. Gerald Sebranek was one of the 6 no votes and explained to the board......he was voting on behalf of his constituents.
The board passed the measure on a 23-6 vote. They join the City of La Crosse and the La Crosse Area Planning Committee in contributing the $49 thousand needed for the study.....which will begin next month.
