La Crosse County Board votes down financial support for La Crosse Center
Board will not be providing financial support for the la crosse center renovations.
Last week...the executive committee of the la crosse county board approved 138- thousand dollars for the renovations ... but in order for the proposal to pass... it must be approved by two-thirds of the full county board.
At tonight's board meeting... 18 members voted yes and 7 voted no... but the proposal failed because the two-thirds threshold wasn't reached out of the 29 total board members some members expressed concern with the la crosse center board and the city about requesting money.
"i think a lot of people had concerns about the process, about how the money was requested, about our seat at the table, about whther we were given a voice in this whole process.
So, i think that informed a lot of the votes and i think that's why it didn't pass."
The la crosse county board plans to go back to square one and build a better relationship with the entities involved in the
