Maybe the City should start following up on the people that are living in the parks doing their drinking, smoking and whatever else they are doing. Since when does the City own the air and tell people that they can't do something that is completely legal. Novel idea, spend your time on trying out how to figure a way to fix our roads and deal with the insane assessment that was just done to property owners. Oh wait, that might actually involve time and work. Smokers pay taxes and have every right to smoke if they choose. I agree with the comment about banning alcohol at all of the fests and parks then also.

Why waste the boards time on rules and regulations that will be impossible to enforce. How about coming up with ideas on infrastructure, things that can really matter and if left go can cause injury disease or even death. You know the real stuff you're supposed to do to protect the citizenry of Lacrosse and area.


If you don't like it, Comrade, run for office. But first you have to become an American citizen. You can do all the advance studying from your bot farm in St. Petersburg.


Just vape, bros


If your going to ban smoking , then you better ban all alcohol in the parks and fest grounds. Smoking doesn't kill anyone immediately as alcohol can. People drive to and from the fest grounds and parks, have a couple drinks , then get back in their cars and could kill someone on their way home!! So if its good for smoking, its better to ban a alcohol!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'm confident the smoking ban will be enforced as well as the no dogs in park ban is... Meaning not at all.

Only a utility, or government agency, both spending other peoples money, would create such havoc and waste to avoid a circumstance that might arise "in 40 or 50 years."



You've clearly never worked on a project that required future planning.

As I said ridiculous. Time value of money, technological obsolescence, and other uncertainties vs the ease of spending the other peoples money for an over engineered and wasteful pursuit.


How are your investments in buggy whips doing?
