New unpaid parking ticket software could impact driving privileges

New parking software upgrades that track delinquent parking ticket payments will soon impact driving privileges of those who don’t pay in the city of Prairie du Chien. This comes after the city council approved an ordinance Tuesday night that imposes penalties for not paying the parking tickets.

City Administrator Aaron Kramer outlined the state-issued penalties for non-payment. Under the ordinance, the forfeiture will be doubled if paid within 15 to 28 days after the date of the violation or tripled if paid within 29 to 45 days after the date of violation. If the forfeiture is not paid within 45 days, the registration of the vehicle involved in the violation could be suspended until the penalty is paid in full along with a $25 fee for the processing of the paperwork.

Tennis courts at Hoffman Hall net anonymous donation toward upgrade


An anonymous donation of nearly $40,000 will help to improve the tennis courts on the green space west of Hoffman Hall later this summer. Key project components are a drainage system, new poles and nets, and a color sealant for the top layer—all of which will improve the sustainability and look of the facility.

By Correne Martin

An anonymous donor has stepped forward with nearly $40,000 to improve the outdoor tennis courts at Hoffman Hall in Prairie du Chien, providing for a more appealing facility on which people can play the lifetime sport. The overhaul of the courts is expected to be done by mid-August.

“This is a wonderful donation by somebody who cares about the tennis community, not only now but in the future,” Prairie du Chien Park and Recreation Director Mike Ulrich stated.
