Moratorium Confirmed, Task Force Next
The La Crosse city council has given final okay to a six month moratorium on rental conversions in the city. The council has confirmed a vote from earlier this week that would keep property owners from turning their single family, owner occupied homes into rentals. The rental conversion time-out is meant to give a yet-to-be-appointed task force time to come up with new ideas for fixing neighborhoods. In arguing for the moratorium, councilman Bob Seaquist says it wouldn't have a negative impact on anybody.
