The Mac and Mack show on city council’s culture with female majority, EV busses, homelessness, upcoming committee meeting

View descriptionShare

Mac Kiel and Mackenzie Mindel in studio discussing the culture of La Crosse’s city council, three years into the first-ever female majority. We also talked about the city’s EV busses in the cold, homelessness and recapping last month’s meeting and next week’s Judiciary and Administration (J&A) Committee. 

Mindel is the chair of the J&A committee and Kiel is also on it. Toward the end of the show we talk about two items on Tuesday’s agenda — essentially rezoning proposals for a UW-La Crosse parking ramp and updates at the REACH Center.

Before that, however, we began the show with the most important thing from the February meeting — (2:45) allowing us to drink and play pickleball — the saga of Blue Zone Pickleball getting their alcohol license at the north side building that used to be Shopko.

After that, (7:20) we talk about how things have changed three years into a female majority on La Crosse’s city council.

Began the second half of the show with a couple of updates from Kiel on how the city’s EV busses handled last month’s very cold spell, along with a bit of a homeless update (25:50), as she goes out with the outreach team weekly.

We then recapped (29:30) a couple of items passed in the February council meeting, including allowing Accessory Dwelling Units and setting aside $7.6 million for Phase 3 of the River Point District (32:50) and how that came to be.

Lastly, a look at the J&A meeting Tuesday and a quick breakdown (34:20) of the UW-La Crosse and REACH Center rezoning requests.
