La Crosse Finance and Personnel Committee passes Capital Improvement Plan with amendments

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – La Crosse’s Finance and Personnel Committee approved the Capital Improvement Plan with some amendments.

Those amendments include moving some projects to different budget years and eliminating some funding altogether.

Prior to Thursday night’s meeting, several community members wrote letters criticizing the lack of funding for La Crosse’s trails.

Mayor Mitch Reynolds addressed the issue in the meeting, saying there will still be funding for trails next year, but funding will come out of the operations budget instead.
