La Crosse Mayor Mitch Reynolds in the WIZM studio Monday for La Crosse Talk PM discussing the homeless legislation coming to city council, challenging the historic designation of the former south side library and creating a city administrator position.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

We overview those topics to start the show, then begin talking (5:40) about the process of creating a city administrator position, what that role would entail and how that might change what the mayor does for La Crosse.

Began the second half of the show on the Mayor’s appeal of the Historic Preservation Commission’s decision to grant the former South Community Library historic designation. That designation came a month before the city’s Economic and Community Development Commission endorsed a housing proposal for the building.

Lastly, we discuss homelessness in multiple facets, including camping rules and having the city council be in charge of camping bans, plus what the Wisconsin state Legislature is(n’t) doing when it comes to this crisis.
