More Money Sought for Campground Audit
The La Crosse city council is poised to approve more money to pay some of the leftover legal and accounting bills from the Pettibone campground and RV park audit. Back in 2007, The council approved spending up to 35 grand to audit the campground because of multiple questions over use. At the time, council members also wanted to insure the campground was being run by Mark Pretasky the way A.W. Pettibone would have wanted when he donated the land to the city in 1901. The city is now negotiating a new lease with Pretasky. But apparently has rung up nearly 15 thousand dollars in fees above the 35 thousand originally approved for the audit.
