KENOSHA (WKOW)  - A southern Wisconsin community hopes their efforts can save their Chrysler plant.

Tuesday night, the Kenosha City Council unanimously passed a resolution opposing Chrysler's plan to close its engine plant in the city by the end of 2010.

The resolution praises the workers, saying the plant is a vital part of the local economy.  It provides $43 million in wages and $450,000 in property taxes.

The resolution will now go to President Obama, members of Congress and the director of Chrysler.
