WHEEL see if LaCrosse follows other counties in our state as they are considering implementing an annual wheel tax.
Mayor Tim Kabat says it’s the only way to continue funding road repairs and has introduced legislation for the tax for city residents. He says the city has run out of its rainy day fund, can’t raise sales taxes, and doesn’t want to raise property taxes. The proposal calls for a 25-dollar wheel tax per registered vehicle every year. Early numbers say the tax would generate just over a million-dollars annually.
