City Reserve Fund Will Take Hit From Storm
The city of La Crosse reserve cash fund is about to take a sizable hit. City public works director Dale Hexom says the surplus will likely get tapped to pay the estimated half million dollars in bills for response to last month's tornado. Lots of stuff to pay for like sidewalks, clean-up, repairs to the Green Island Ice Arena and overtime for police and fire.
The city currently is looking for bids on repairing 45 hundred square feet of sidewalks damaged in the storm, mostly by the couple hundred trees that ripped up chunks of concrete as they fell during the storm.
