The city of La Crosse could lose almost $6 million in tax revenue this year, in large part because of the coronavirus pandemic.
To avoid such a big loss, the city council is being asked to pass an Economic Recession Plan for La Crosse.
The plan is designed to anticipate a declining economy, and make adjustments to help the city.
Mayor Tim Kabat said City Hall needs such a plan soon, arguing that
The coronavirus has caused a severe cutback in city operations, hotel room taxes, and fines. The shutdown of the La Crosse Center, for construction, didn’t help either.
