2021 Observer Corps Pilot

Our goal is to educate LWV La Crosse members on local government activities with the potential to refer topics for further study and advocacy.

We will begin with local government including La Crosse County and the City of La Crosse. At the county level we will narrow the focus to the County Comprehensive Plan. At the city level we will focus on the capital improvement and operations budgeting process until the city begins their comprehensive plan.
