La Crosse, Town of Shelby hold public meeting on boundary agreement

Residents of La Crosse and the Town of Shelby are getting a closer look at the recent boundary agreement between the two areas.

They got to hear more about the maps that came out of years of talk and negotiation while also giving their own input at a public information meeting Tuesday night.

Some Shelby residents at the meeting said they didn’t feel like their voices were heard during the process of drawing up the agreement. The town’s chairman, Tim Candahl, says they’ll take what they heard tonight and see if changes need to be made.

“We will listen to their concerns, and we’ll have some other meetings with the city, we’ll have some meetings with our town board, and see if some of the stuff that we can work on and maybe tweak the agreement, and we will look at that,” said Candahl.

Officials say they don’t expect a vote on the boundary agreement until late spring or mid-summer of next year.
