New Fee to Fund Airport Upgrades
It will cost you an extra few bucks to fly out of La Crosse in the near future. The city plans to start collecting four and a half bucks extra fee per passenger starting in January 2016. The plan is to use the money to do upgrades to the airport terminal and to the radio system, to buy a new backup generator and a snow removal truck. The per-passenger charge is scheduled to be collected for six years and is expected to generate about 2.8 million dollars. The city's taking public comment on the fee until mid May.
