LA CROSSE, Wis. - The City of La Crosse collected more money than they had hoped for in boat landing fees in 2012 and they say the money is being put to good use.
They had hoped for $40,000 and ended up collecting $52,000. They've already used the money for several improvements, including new docks, picnic areas, washing stations and information kiosks.18318338
They are developing a five year plan for renovations that would including things like more canoe and kayak landings and a pavilion at West Copeland.
"Some of our projects are going to be a little more expensive than others and we may have to carry a surplus over from year to year to save up in a sense to complete some," said La Crosse Parks and Recreation Supervisor Jay Odegaard,
The price of the landing fees are staying the same this year. The day passes are $3 for residents and $5 for nonresidents. Annual passes are $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents.
