One New Fee, One Fee Hike Considered by La Crosse Council

Whether the city of La Crosse will have higher property taxes as a result
of shrinking state aid is yet to be seen. But at least two city
departments are seeking to add revenue to the treasury through fees. Like
the higher fireworks fee being sought by fire chief Gregg Cleveland from groups like the Skyrockers who perform the city's Fourth of July show every year.   The new fee would go from $30 every year to $125 twice per year, an eight-fold increase.  The planning department is also aiming for a
thirty dollar per sign billboard inspection fee. The city council is set
to decide on both this month.
