La Crosse Fire Chief Ken Gilliam visited the WIZM studio Thursday afternoon.


We hit a bunch of topics, including the difficulties the fire dept. has with traffic circles (not roundabouts) on, for example, King Street.

Began the show discussing shared-service planning with Holmen’s fire dept. and ended with where La Crosse is at with new fire stations. And in between somewhere, we, of course, talked about the rollover accident that happened a block away from a fire truck dedication.

We also did a sidebar on how Mayor Mitch Reynolds is doing and what’s the more difficult job — mayor of a city or state legislator or US Congressman.
