Job Retention Not a Requirement for Chart Agreement

A development agreement between the city of La Crosse and a large employer will be a little lighter when it comes to job requirements.  The city council finance committee has agreed to a an expansion deal with Chart on the southside involving a new TIF district, a big facility expansion and a hundred new jobs.  But the city will drop a job retention clause that was in the original agreement



Mayor Tim Kabat.  Kabat says because Chart is in such a volatile industry, a job retention arrangement didn't make sense.  The agreement with Chart still needs final approval from the full city council next week.
