LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A pair of senior centers in La Crosse could close and have their services moved in the near future.
The Board of Public Works reviewed a report Monday for the five buildings in the city that house programs for seniors.
The group is recommending a three-year timeline to close both the Southside Senior Citizen Center and the Harry J. Olson Senior Center and move the services elsewhere.
It's yet to be determined where the services will move.
The report says the minimum recommended improvements to the centers would have topped $100,000. "With the senior population, we want to look at how we provide the meal sites and those programs at the least cost to the taxpayers," said Mayor Tim Kabat.
The report says the city would have to spend about $80,000 between the Black River Beach Center and the Southside Neighborhood Center so they could function in the county meals program.
The recommendation has to go through the full council.
