A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 5, at the beginning of the Prairie du Chien Common Council meeting, in consideration of rezoning the former Wyalusing Academy property from low-density residential to high-density residential. Discussion and action is expected. Interested citizens are welcome.
Also at Tuesday night’s meeting, a request to test the siren by the city’s fire station daily will go in front of the council. The public works committee recommended, following its Dec. 15 meeting, the council approve activating the siren at noon each day.
Fire Chief Harry Remz and Steve Rickleff spoke at the committee meeting regarding the proposal, stating that the additional operation will increase the projected life of the siren, according to conversations with the siren’s sales representatives.
