LA CROSSE, WISCONSIN (WXOW)-- Mayor Tim Kabat made good on a campaign promise Thursday evening-- holding a listening session for residents.
He's calling it "Coffee with Kabat," an informal way for residents to voice their concerns and opinions on different city issues. The mayor says the goal is to make it a conversation without an agenda and he'll take the suggestions to the necessary departments.
Thursday, the topics ranged from increasing home-ownership in La Crosse to the bus routes to Christmas tree pick up. There was also a lot of talk about working with the surrounding cities and towns.
"The idea of more regionalism and trying to work with our neighbors when it comes to various services, whether it's police, fire, transit, because I think people realize that we cant just go at it alone," Mayor Kabat said. "We have to work with our neighboring communities to provide services."
The next "Coffee with Kabat" session will be January 23 at the southside neighborhood center at 5.
