La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat’s choice for interim planning director has been given the OK by a council committee Thursday.

The finance and planning committee sent Trane’s nomination to the full city council for a vote next week. 

Kabat praised Trane for helping raise development in La Crosse to new levels.
