KENOSHA ⏤ Initiatives to improve the Kenosha Fire Department and internet access in Uptown and throughout the city moved through committees this week.

For the KFD, city committees approved needed variances for a new Kenosha Fire Station No. 4. The city is planning to largely model the new Fire Station No. 4 after the recently-completed Fire Station No. 1 in the city.

On Monday, the city Public Works Committee also approved the location of a new SiFi Networks Communication Hut in the Uptown neighborhood. The hut is one of three that will help expand internet access and capacity throughout the city limits.
