The director of the La Crosse Center is scheduled to retire a month from now, but the Center board of directors is still working out how the building will be run when Art Fahey leaves.
The board could soon appoint a committee to study the options for bringing in private management — an idea that was introduced months ago when Fahey announced his plan to retire.
Supporters of the management change say the city would still own the building, but the managers would come from outside, similar to how the Forest Hills Golf Club operates.
Center board members have been considering private management to run the facility that just underwent a $42-million makeover last year.
Fahey said whether a private firm is brought in or not, the Center will still need to have a core staff to handle day-by-day operations.
