LA CROSSE, Wis. -

La Crosse's new mayor is looking at ways to move the city forward.

Mayor Tim Kabat met with his executive committee Tuesday, which consists of department heads and committee members.

He wants to identify the biggest challenges facing the city, such as neighborhood improvement, economic development, and improving services at city hall.

The mayor says its going to be a team effort. "It's going to be a combination of new programs, redirecting funding in some cases, legislation and enforcement over the course of the next several years realistically to make a positive difference," said Mayor Kabat.
