Kenosha County: Where's the plow?

Coming back from Milwaukee tonight, I got off the dangerous interstate and onto Highway 38 to County H to County C and then Green Bay Road.

Racine County plows and salt trucks were out and the streets were in reasonably safe winter driving conditions.

Not so when you got to Kenosha County where nothing was done and no salts trucks were visible. The wet Green Bay road turned into ice and there were several multicar accidents north of County JR and another accident at Highway E.

Interesting how Racine County can have wet and safe roads and Kenosha County's are ice covered and dangerous -- especially after a significant tax increase this year.

This performance is inexcusable. County Executive Al Kehl is smart and savvy and hopefully he'll make sure this doesn't happen again. I'm sure he remembers the story of Michael Bilandic.
