City of La Crosse looks to downsize committees

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The La Crosse City Council is looking for more ways to downsize.

Tuesday the Mayor invited several committee chairs to the Executive Committee meeting to start a discussion about reorganizing or even downsizing the number of committees.

Right now the city has about 50 committees. The city is looking to end committees they may not need anymore, or combining commitees that could work together.

The Mayor would also like to see more La Crosse residents getting involved in committees. "We have many committees that are in ensence just filled with council members and so they're having those arguments and then they bring them to the council and have the same arguments and that to me seems not productive at all," said the Mayor.

Tuesday's meeting was just a discussion, there is no plan in place or timetable for reorganizing committees.
