Began the show, though, with a little civics lesson on just how something makes it to the La Crosse County agenda. After that, we discussed recent board actions, including the $500,000 child care grant funding, a pilot housing program called “Family Keys” for welfare-engaged families, as well as some added road use for ATVs and pulling weeds in Lake Onalaska.

After that, we discussed the 2024 budget, which should be around $200 million and just how that process works. Ended the show talking about the recent broadband committee and where the DEI consultant is at with her county study.
