Preparing for "Council 101"
La Crosse's newest city council members have a bit to learn before they get rolling.
The four new members were sworn in on Tuesday. Now they can look forward to "Council 101" - a basic informational session conducted by the city attorney, council president, and Teri Lehrke, the city clerk.
The orientation provides a lot of information, but Lehrke says it's mostly just the basics.
"About the committee system, election of officers, updates, codebook updates, how to enact legislation," says Lehrke.
Council members also get a quick introduction to Parliamentary Procedure.
The training is scheduled for next week.
