Homeless coordinator proposed for La Crosse, more money for PFAS testing
A new full-time management position is being proposed at La Crosse City Hall, to organize efforts to reduce homelessness in the community.
The city finance committee approves the plan for a Homeless Services Coordinator, and the full council will get a vote next week.
City planning director Andrea Trane says a special million-dollar grant would provide money for that new position.
In other committee business, a plan to spend more money testing La Crosse city wells for PFAS chemicals gets approval.
City leaders are being asked to approve $75,000 more for testing at the airport, near the city’s wells 23 and 24.
