Security changes for La Crosse’s City Hall

Security changes could impact your next visit to La Crosse’s City Hall.

The doors at the south entrance to the building are now locked.

Entry to the building can now only be made through the doors on the north end of the building.

Office employees will also be required to wear their ID badges while in the building.

The age of the building make the changes necessary to keep community members safe.

Employees will also have to use their ID badges to access restricted areas in the building.
