City meetings light
On the city of Kenosha side of tonight’s meetings, agenda items appear to be somewhat light for all committees except the Kenosha Public Works Committee and also the Parks Committee.
In fact, tonight’s Licenses and Permits Committee meeting has been canceled entirely. That committee, however, has rescheduled that meeting for May 17.
Tonight at 5:30 p.m., the city Public Works Committee will consider the approval needed for various events planned for this summer in Kenosha.
The applications before the committee tonight include those for:
- Catholic Father’s Day (June 19, 2021)
- Kenosha Make Music Day (June 21, 2021)
- Civic Veterans Parade (June 27, 2021)
- Celebrate America Event (July 3 and July 4, 2021)
- And the Peanut Butter & Jam Concert Series (Thursdays, July 8 – Aug. 26, 2021).
The committee will also “accept” a couple projects that have been “satisfactorily completed” near the end of its meeting.
These include the Simmons Island Beach restoration and site improvement, completed by A.W. Oakes & Son, Inc., for the amount of $1,432,703.36.
City meetings still virtual
While the Kenosha County Board and its committees have returned to in-person attendance, the city remains allowing only virtual attendance at government meetings.
