Boat Harbor receives 30-day extension to remove nuisances

La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The City of La Crosse’s Board of Public Works has given the La Crosse Municipal Boat Harbor operator a 30-day extension to correct problems.

A December forbearance agreement between the harbor and the city required the harbor to have all boats and other property licensed or deemed operable by city inspectors by April 30th.

The harbor had 38 violations in December, and now it currently has only nine violations and 26 additional minor violations which must be corrected before the end of May.

“I feel confident that we can get it resolved. (Municipal Boat Harbor Owner Steve) Mills has been working very, very diligently to get these items addressed, and I’m hopeful it’ll get done,” City of La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat said.

Mills said he is “confident” he can meet the deadline at the end of May and correct all licensing and code violations.

“We’ve said all through the process that we want to have a harbor that’s for the community. There are people who are going to be out there boating as soon as the water levels go down and depending on what’ll happen, that would still be the intent,” Kabat said.
