The La Crosse Police Department will present its third-quarter parking report to the Board.

Police issued 6,474 citations totaling $136,210. Also in the report was “total number of citations collected” at 205, which totaled $13,956.35.

Police also immobilized nine vehicles with a total of $4,560 in fees — $2,160 of which has been paid.

Parking fees totaled $242,629 and came in three different ways:

  • Pay station: $37,813.12
  • Permit: $185,370.60
  • App: $19,446

Combined, the third quarter totaled $380,999.72 from drivers.

There are 2,059 parking ramp permits available. The city sold 1,309 of them through the third quarter.

Also on the agenda is appropriating additional utility reserve funds for storm water updates.

The $55,000 request is for design of additional storm water utility and infrastructure as part of a Wisconsin Department of Transportation project on La Crosse Street from Oakland to Losey Boulevard.

That would bring the total to $74,500 — $57,500 from Storm Sewer reserves and $17,000 from Water Utility reserve funds. The city has signed on with Mead & Hunt, Inc., for these services.

One other thing on the agenda is Charter looking to bury fiber optics at a couple places in the city:

  • 4000 Old Town Hall Road
  • 4000 Sunnyside Drive
  • 100 block of 6th Street South
