La Crosse Auditor: Fund Balance Now Exceeds $20 mill
It's like finding an extra five bucks in your pocket. Except bigger. Way bigger. The city of La Crosse is sitting on a wad of cash that has now grown bigger than $20 million. It's not mad money. It's money that's in a revolving fund balance to deal with unexpected expenses and to pay bills in case shared revenue from the state comes in late. Still, the city's never passed the $20 million mark for the fund balance in the past. The city's auditor says, while some of that money is committed to other uses, about $19.5 million of it can be used.
