Tomah mayor upset with Roadsnacks ranking

Written by

The Website Roadsnacks recently did a study of best and worst Wisconsin city's to live and some of the areas listed are somewhat shocking. Especially Tomah Mayor Shannon Hough who's city is listed 22nd on the Worst places to live in Wisconsin list.

Criteria for the ranking included highest unemployment rates, education levels and crime rates. Hough backs up that criteria....and says it's all basically wrong.

 

Hough also has a tough time dealing with the fact that Milwaukee, who's population is not even comparable to Tomah's, was also ranked with her city. A little higher up the list though as Wisconsin's largest city was ranked the 13th worst to live in.

Sanders to make virtual stops

Written by

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is coming soon to a house party near you, albeit digitally. On July 29th, the Sanders campaign will host coordinated house parties and organizing rallies around the world. And while Sanders would love to be at all of them, he is bound to his Senate duties in Washington. So he ll beam himself in via a live stream link.

Sanders says the idea that he can simultaneously be speaking to people located in 1,000 different places is pretty, pretty exciting. The party planning for the event will also be almost entirely digital. Hosts will set up events on the campaign website, and super volunteers, or builders as Sanders calls them, will help.

A local La Crosse event has been scheduled and moved to a larger arena already. Once scheduled at the Old Crow in downtown La Crosse, now has been moved to the Southside Neighborhood Center from 5:30- 8:30 PM Wednesday. The live stream with Sanders will start at 6:30.

More money from ramps than expected

Written by

Drivers parking in the downtown La Crosse ramps are giving much more money to the city than expected. The revenue collected through the pay stations in the ramps is already two-thirds of the way to this year's goal, only halfway through 2015. Through the end of June, 72-thousand dollars was collected in parking fees at the ramp gates. That's compared to the 108-thousand dollars predicted in the city budget. Over a million dollars has been generated this year through parking fees and tickets...also well ahead of expectations.

Voters approve Caledonia pool

Written by

A big vote proved to be positive for many in Caledonia Thursday. Voters there approved spending up to $1 million for a new municipal swimming pool. The margin of victory was just 19 votes.

According to city leaders who will meet in special Monday night, plans are to construct a new pool at the site of the old pool. A failed referendum earlier this year was for $1.6 million but that was lowered when some of the plans were eliminated. The approved plan also calls for updates to the restroom areas and bath house.

 

The vote came after a similar referendum was turned down by a wide margin by the voters last January.

Associated to close more branches

Written by

Associated Bank is planning to close more branches in Wisconsin.  Even though the company saw its income rise during the second quarter, six Associated locations in the state will be shut down, including one in Eau Claire.  Changes in customer patterns, including greater use of digital banking, are being cited as the reason for the closings.  Associated plans to open a new bank in La Crosse next summer on County Lot C, to take the place of its State Street bank, which will soon become a county office building.
