Property Tax Fight Will Continue With More Money
For years, a fight has gone on between the city of La Crosse and Gundersen-Lutheran. It's a fight over computer equipment. The medical center says the computers it uses in medical equipment should be property tax exempt under state law. The city says, no. The legal fight over the exemption has been going on since 2002. The case is currently under appeal in Dane county circuit court. The city council this week will get asked to approve more money to keep the legal battle going. The city has spent about 85 thousand dollars so far fighting Gundersen's tax exempt claims.
