The city of La Crosse is getting close to deciding on a plan to expand the La Crosse Center.
Now, city leaders have to figure out how to pay for it.
Two financial advisors for the city spoke to council members on Monday, presenting different options for bonding of the $42 million project.
Depending on the kind of bonds the council chooses, the project could be paid off in about 20 years, or 40 years.
The council also has to decide how high the hotel room tax should be.
It’s at 8 percent now, but could be increased to 12 percent to bring in more revenue to finance the center remodeling.
