LA CROSSE, Wis. -

La Crosse Mayor Matt Harter is once again using his veto power on a City Council resolution.

The mayor disagrees with the decision to dissolve the monthly Committee of the Whole meeting which serves as a public forum for council issues.

Some committee members say the meeting was redundant and took away efficiency.

In his veto, Harter says the current process allows ample public input and is not overly burdensome, and getting rid of the meeting is not an improvement to the legislative process.
