Starting at 4:30 p.m., the city’s Licenses and Permits Committee will meet on the second floor of the Kenosha Municipal Building, 625 52nd St. 

Tonight’s agenda includes the approval of two new operator’s licenses, and several cabaret licenses. 

Of note, a new business, Betty and Ronald’s, hopes to secure a liquor license at 2105 22nd Ave. According to the documents filled out by owner Naketha Campbell, the business will be a full-service restaurant. 

The 7,347-square-foot-building will also have two bathrooms, two storage areas, an office and a basement. The business will employ seven full-time and three part-time employees.

The committee will discuss the license last at its meeting tonight. If approved by the committee, it will then go to the City Council for final approval.
