City of La Crosse still trying to hire MTU manager



It’s been over a year La Crosse’s mass transit utility has gone without a full-time boss.

La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat hopes to have a new manager hired in the next couple months. Jim Krueger has been the interim MTU manager since then.

Former manager Keith Lee retired at the end of 2016. Kabat points out that they went through three candidate searches without landing a permanent replacement.
