Finance Director Gets Credit for Better Rating
Thanks coming to the La Crosse city finance director after a bump in the city's bond rating. A jump to Standard and Poor's second highest AA+ means big savings in borrowing for the city. And city council finance committee chair, Audrey Kader says finance boss, Wayne Delagrave deserves much of the credit. She says his guidance of the city council has made the difference
The city's very healthy reserve fund helped secure the higher bond rating. Delagrave has been a constant proponent of using money in that fund only when absolutely necessary.
