Olson Convinced Partial Tear Down of Temple Best Course
Some real careful demolition appears to be the best choice for the old Masonic temple on La Crosse's northside. The city has agreed to pay for tear down and partial renovation of the dilapidated building that wraps around the north and east sides of Buzz's bikes on Rose street. City council member Chris Olson says that was a better option than tearing the whole thing down because, at least this way, Buzz's can still stay in business. Olson's convinced that the city will be able to recover some costs for the project from the temple's current owners.
