Coming up this week (October 30-November 5)

The City of La Crosse 2018-2022 Capital Improvement Budget is wending its way through the machinery. You can view it here. There haven't been well publicized (if any) opportunities for public input besides individuals following the budget through committees and emailing their council rep or mayor. On Thursday, the budget will be on the agenda at the Finance and Personnel Committee. This is an opportunity for the public to make comments (no longer guaranteed at meetings of the entire council). Check out the proposed budget and the Mayor's comments. Get there before 6 p.m. so you can fill in a comment form before the start of the meeting.
