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).
