A three-way agreement for fire protection in one part of La Crosse County is still under dispute...
The town of Onalaska remains unsatisfied with a funding formula for the Holmen Fire District, requiring the town to split costs evenly with Holmen and the town of Holland. Holmen village president Nancy Proctor wants to see all three communities reach agreement, for the good of everyone.
The fire district board meets tomorrow night. Onalaska town leaders argue that they pay too much money into the system, compared to the number of fire calls they have.
The race for mayor of La Crosse has become more of a toss-up, now that former mayor John Medinger is out of the running...

Since Medinger ended his brief campaign, the field for mayor includes one current council member and a former councilman, along with mostly unknown candidates.
