A storm sewer has to be fixed in the French Island area, but who’s going to pay for it?
The La Crosse board of public works tackled that problem on Tuesday, while reviewing sewer damage on a block of Nakomis Avenue.
The overall cost of repairs could be $37,000, but the city of La Crosse and town of Campbell could share $25,000 of the expenses.
La Crosse council member Gary Padesky doesn’t want the city to make the first move, without being assured that Campbell will cover half the cost.
Kwik Trip expansions are happening in many locations, with the company enlarging its dairy production facilities in La Crosse’s north-side industrial park, and looking for more sewer capacity.
Kwik Trip rep Todd Nedegaard tells the city board of public works that a sewer study would be helpful, whether it’s done by city staff or somebody else.
