LA CROSSE, Wis. -

La Crosse's City Council re-considers dissolving its monthly Tuesday meeting.

Council members re-affirmed their decision Thursday night to dissolve the Committee of the Whole, but will re-visit the issue again in three months.

Committee members said the meeting, which serves as a public forum, was redundant and not an efficient way to run city government.

Public hearings will now occur at the Finance and Personnel, and the Judiciary and Administration committees instead.

Protestors said the move limits the public's voice.

The council also did the same to the Highways, Properties and Utility board.
