La Crosse committee votes for new HR director



La Crosse is preparing to hire a new human resources director.

Rebecca Franzen was approved Thursday by the city’s Finance & Personnel Committee to succeed retiring human resource director David Buroker.

The full city council could vote on the appointment next week.

La Crosse Mayor Mitch Reynolds told the committee that Franzen is “the ideal candidate” for the post.

“When the interview was over, I felt like I had been interviewed, which is a really, really good sign,” Reynolds said.

Franzen told committee members she’s looking forward to taking the job, saying she is “passionate” about human relations.

Franzen now lives in the Winona area, and has worked in human resources there for government and private business.
