The above picture was taken tonight on 56th Street west of Sheridan Road in downtown Kenosha, a major street in front of the courthouse that carries significant vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The condition of this major street nearly two days after the end of the storm speaks volumes.
And yet there are other city streets in much better shape and the worst street in Pleasant Prairie rivals some of the best in the city.
The hard work of public works crews cannot be understated. It's grueling. But in the above instance, not only didn't the city keep up with the storm, it didn't do anything meaningful in terms of a cleanup.
