New permits required for La Crosse homes in the floodplain

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — People who own property in La Crosse’s floodplain will now need permits for more types of work on their house.

The permits don’t cost anything; however, they are required for people who want to perform any siding, window or door replacement projects on a home in the floodplain. The requirement was added by the city of La Crosse to bring it into compliance with federal and state regulations designed to track projects on homes in the floodplain.

Other types of work will also require a permit. For more information, visit the city of La Crosse website here.
