A new law enforcement center for the city of La Crosse gets a push from city leaders.
Mayor Tim Kabat and the police and fire chiefs all spoke in favor of a new facility during a city plan commission meeting on Monday.
Contrary to the perception that the proposal is brand new, Kabat says this building has been discussed for several years already.
Police chief Shawn Kudron supports the building proposed for the Market Street area, saying it would be an “anchor” for the community.
The plan commission has deadlocked on the idea of building a Weigent Park shelter and bathroom next year, instead of waiting until 2022.
Council member Jessica Olson says users of the park on Cass Street would like permanent bathrooms at the park on Cass Street as soon as possible.
