City of La Crosse, Rush soccer reach agreement for Field for Kids complex

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The City of La Crosse has a new 10-year use agreement for the Field for Kids soccer complex.

You may remember last year the city had a dispute with Rush Wisconsin West after finding out the organization violated the terms of the previous agreement by charging for parking during tournaments.

The city said Rush Wisconsin West owed them $49,000 for violating the agreement which let the organization lease the soccer complex for one dollar a year.

After negotiating a new deal, that amount is being reduced to $7,000.

Rush Wisconsin West will also be allowed to sell concessions and charge for parking except for school programs and city recreation events.

However, they'll also have to pay rent to the city in the amount of $4,000 for the first year of the agreement, $5,000 in year two, increasing to $7,000 per year for years three through ten.

 The new agreement runs until March 2028.
