City and Soccer Club in Lease Dispute
A youth soccer club has turned its one dollar a year lease with the city of La Crosse into quite a money maker. Much of it in violation of their lease, says city park and rec boss, Steve Carlyon. The group, CRUSA leases 18 fields for its competitive soccer program. And among other things, says Carlyon, the group's subleasing to the local high school teams
The two sides are negotiating a new lease right now that would not allow the school sublease arrangement. The new lease would also force the club to charge more to kids who don't live in La Crosse.
