It might not take long for La Crosse businesses to start setting up ‘outdoor cafes.’
The city council approved the outdoor option at a special meeting Thursday night, so restaurants and other businesses could try to attract more customers right away.
Council member Gary Padesky says it’s possible City Hall could approve permits for cafe plans at a board of public works meeting on Monday.
Restaurant dining on the street is intended to stimulate businesses which have not seen many indoor customers during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The outdoor cafe project is scheduled to last into early November.
