Kiel and Mindel are on the Judiciary and Administration Committee, which meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday. We began the show reviewing one decision by the council last month on a state law dealing with supermajorities. 

Mindel also talked (10:45) about her experience meeting Vice President Kamala Harris, who came to La Crosse last Monday.

After that, Kiel gave a bit of a homeless update, as she goes out with the Homeless Outreach Team each week.

Began the second half of the show (20:20) with a J&A agenda item to rezone for an ethnic grocery store and apartments on the south side.

Then we spent a good amount of time (23:10) discussing the city receiving $50,000 to award to youth groups as part of the Youth Climate Action Fund.

Wrapped up the show (32:00) discussing the potential sale of the old south side Library building and one hiccup in the plan in that it could get historic designation.
