Dissolution of City Ethics Board Sought

Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian wants to dissolve the city’s ethics board and shift responsibility to the city attorney’s office. On Monday, the ordinance passed the Kenosha Licensing/Permit, Public Safety & Welfare and Public Works committees. It will now have to pass the City Council, which could happen next month. Antaramian said the city is permitted to make use of an ethics board or the city attorney’s office, but that the ethics board often “takes too long.” If passed, the city attorney’s office will address issues related to the City Council and how members can vote, and the district attorney’s office would handle ethics complaints.
