Kenosha Superstation Gets $4.7M Boost

Kenosha has earned a $4.7 million low-interest Housing and Urban Development loan guarantee to pay for the construction of an expanded fire and emergency services station at the vacant site of the former Bain Elementary School. HUD Midwest regional administrator Antonio Riley made the announcement Monday during a press conference at Fire Department Station 4 with Mayor John Antaramian and new Fire Chief Charles Leipzig (LIPE-zig). Riley said the loan will allow Kenosha to expand coverage, fill a need and create jobs. Under the proposal, two older city fire stations would close and merge into a “super” station on the site of the former Bain Elementary School. The two stations considered for closure: Station 3, on Roosevelt Road, and Station 5 on Washington Road.
