The La Crosse Mayor is asking the city council to vote whether to let long-term residents live at the Municipal Board Harbor year-round.
It's not clear if anybody has already been doing that and there are no rules prohibiting it. Mayor Tim Kabat wants to head off legal issues while the city bolsters services for harbor residents. The city council meets today (Thursday). The attention comes at a time La Crosse is accepting bids for the re-construction of the harbor and docks. Those facilities were closed in December and is scheduled to re-open by May 1st for the fishing season.
