Marsh Transfer Could Involve Extensive Title Searches
This idea about transferring city marshland to the DNR has gotten complicated. La Crosse will apparently work towards fulfilling a promise that's more than a decade old to transfer the city's marsh to the state agency. But that involves studying the deeds for 87 individual parcels of land. Some of which might not get transferred at all, says city engineer Randy Turtenwald
The city's public works board today will vote on whether to ask the city council for thousands of dollars to research the title history for the plots of land in the marsh.
