Council Could Reconsider Budget Moves
La Crosse city council members will get another kick at the can on the city's spending plan for next year. The council has already passed a budget that includes a very modest tax increase, but a significant majority of the council wants to skip the tax increase and take about $50 thousand from the city's significant reserve fund to patch budget holes instead. Mayor Matt Harter had hoped for the same thing but opted not to veto the spending plan until after the council had a chance to reconsider the whole 71 million dollar budget. The council will do that at a meeting tomorrow afternoon.
