A resolution was unanimously approved by the Prairie du Chien Common Council Nov. 21, endorsing a petition to the Office of Commissioner of Railroads to change the designation of the railroad crossing at the Villa Louis Boat Landing from a private crossing to a public crossing. Additional information will be reported at a future council meeting.
