Setting up a stormwater utility in La Crosse hasn't been simple.
City public works director Dale Hexom. Despite some billing complications with the utility, Hexom expects the first stormwater charges to appear on city water bills after the first of the year. Typical homeowner's quarterly water bill will increase by about 14 bucks.
If you should see a cougar in the woods, you might want to wave your arms around and make a lot of noise to scare the cat off.
And, in Wisconsin, it's conceivable that you could have that cougar meeting. Because a big cat was caught on a trail cam near Mauston within the last week. Pretty rare sighting, says DNR biologist Adrian Wydeven
Owners of that hundred thousand dollar home can expect to still pay just a hair under fifteen hundred dollars in taxes to the city of La Crosse for 2012 if a proposed operating budget gets approved next month. The city's tax levy would remain stagnant for the third consecutive year with only property valuations changing how much a homeowner pays the tax man. Still, most in La Crosse won't see a drop-off in services, says mayor Matt Harter
Voter fraud averted in La Crosse. A complaint filed in the city says a guy from the northside signed a Wisconsin Voter Registration application despite being a felon on parole. Can't vote in Wisconsin if you're a felon still under supervision by the state. The La Crosse DA says no charges necessary and has recommended that the city clerk's office simply reject the application.
A La Crosse guy faces felonies after cops say he cut up a neighbor with a knife. Police say 25 year-old Christopher Benson got into a fight with his neighbor over a woman. The fight, they say, led to Benson slicing the neighbor in the neck and the face. Cops found the neighbor in the emergency room, getting treatment for the cuts and his battered face. The neighbor says he was attacked. But police say it seems like he gave nearly as good as he got because Benson had some injuries of his own.
