LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – All La Crosse city committee meetings have been canceled, because of state and federal coronavirus mandates, for the rest of March and the month of April, with a few exceptions, Mayor Tim Kabat said.

The exceptions are:

  • Board of Public Works, March 30
  • City Plan Commission, March 30
  • J&A, March 31
  • F&P, April 2
  • Common Council – April 9

The meeting times remain the same, but city officials are reviewing possible changes to meeting locations and how to handle public hearing testimony and social distancing standards.

“Our plan is to resume regular meetings in May,” Kabat said. “However, we are looking into conference calling and video conferencing of meetings if our meeting challenges go beyond April.
