Invited by students, Mayor Kabat visits school with traffic safety challenges



Longfellow Middle School students made their case to the mayor on Tuesday.

Students showed La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat some scientific data about traffic around the school that they deem to be unsafe at times.

City Hall has been slow to react to concerns from staff, parents and students, so Kabat paid a visit personally to see for himself.

One employee told WIZM that it seems as though this was the first time they really had a good grasp of what the traffic situation around Longfellow Middle School really looked like.
