KENOSHA (WKOW) -- The City of Kenosha will acquire the land where Chrysler autoworkers built engines for decades.
In a special meeting Monday night, the City Council accepted the title for the 109 acres in Kenosha. The city and state agencies will spend $30 million to clean up the vacant manufacturing site where the engine plant once stood. The buildings have been raised, but city administrator Frank Pacetti says there's "tons and tons" of concrete that needs to be removed, among other things.
Mayor Keith Bosman says there are no firm plans for the site, but that he envisions a business park. City officials estimate it will take five to seven years to clean up the property.
The Chrysler plant was closed in October 2010.
