Kenosha County Administration Building to reopen Monday

Kenosha County has announced the reopening of the county Administration Building in Kenosha as of Monday.

From a news release issued Friday:

The Kenosha County Administration Building will reopen to the public on Monday, May 10, County Executive Jim Kreuser announced today.

The facility has been closed to the public since late August, when its front doors and windows were damaged during the civil unrest in the community at that time.

Repairs, which have been delayed due to the historic nature of the building, are ongoing, and replacement of several large, first-floor display windows has not yet occurred. However, a temporary repair to the main entry doors will now allow for the public to safely enter and exit the building.

The building, located at 1010 56th St. in downtown Kenosha, houses the offices of the County Executive, County Clerk, Treasurer, and Register of Deeds, as well as other administrative functions. Building hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Visitors are asked to wear a mask while in the building and practice social distancing wherever possible.
Many services, which have been available online throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, will still be able to be accessed remotely.

Appointments for in-person services — including marriage license applications through the County Clerk’s Office and vital records requests and other real estate services from the Register of Deeds Office — are encouraged and in some cases required to promote social distancing. These may be scheduled online at https://kenoshacounty.timetap.com or by calling the office from which you are seeking services.

For the time being, County Clerk Regi Bachochin’s office will conduct marriage license applications by appointment only; passport application services remain suspended. For more information about services from County Clerk’s Office, please call 262-653-2552 or send an email to countyclerk@kenoshacounty.org. County Treasurer Teri Jacobson’s office is continuing to accept tax payments by mail or online at https://kenoshacounty.org/589/Treasurer or in person. For more information, please contact the office at 262-653-2542 or at TRBank@kenoshacounty.org.
 
Register of Deeds JoEllyn Storz’s office is continuing to record documents and handle applications submitted through the mail and online through VitalCheck. For more information about accessing records by mail or online, please call 262-653-2444 or visit https://www.kenoshacounty.org/522/Register-of-Deeds.

All in-person services may also be accessed at the Elected Officials’ Satellite Office in the Kenosha County Center at highways 45 and 50, which has remained open since last July.

2021 Salem Lakes Clean-up is May 15

The annual resident-organized Salem Lakes Clean-up will be back in its customary spring date for 2021.

The 9th annual event will take place May 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers are asked to meet at Fox River County Park, in the first parking lot.

In the previous 8 years, volunteers have cleaned up over 32 tons of trash from the village. The event was started and continues to be organized by Silver Lake resident Allen Dunski.

Covid-19 caused the event to be postponed until the fall and last year’s attendance dropped significantly, causing less areas to be cleaned.

In an effort to show appreciation to the volunteers, organizers are bringing back “Treasure In Trash” to the cleanup. Prior to the cleanup, colored plastic eggs will be placed in the areas targeted for clean up. If you find an egg, you win a prize donated from local businesses.

More information is available here.

County to shift from mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics to pop-up clinics; clinic to be held at Central HS on May 12

Kenosha County Public Health on Tuesday announce a shift from mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics to mobile, community-based vaccination clinics starting next month.

In the meantime, a large scale clinic is scheduled for May 12 from noon to 6 p.m., at Central High School, 24617 75th St., Paddock Lake. Appointments for that clinic can be made here, but are not required.

Other mass vaccination clinics in Kenosha scheduled for May are:

  • Friday, May 7, 9 a.m. to noon, former Shopko building, 5300 52nd St., Kenosha.
  • Friday, May 14, 9 a.m. to noon, Shopko building.
  • Friday, May 21, 9 a.m. to noon, Shopko building.
  • Saturday, May 22, 9 a.m. to noon, Shopko building

A full, frequently updated list of other local providers is available on the Kenosha County COVID-19 Response Hub website at http://bit.ly/KCCOVIDHub, or by clicking the flashing red button at the top of the homepage at https://www.kenoshacounty.org/.

“As we’re seeing demand decrease at our mass community vaccination clinics, we’re nearing the
point where we will be more effective taking the vaccine out to the corners of the community
where it’s most needed,” said Dr. Jen Freiheit, Kenosha County public health officer. “In the meantime, over the coming weeks, we encourage people to come out to our large-scale clinics. Appointments are available, but are no longer required.”

Those attending the May clinics also can now choose which vaccine — Moderna, Pfizer or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson — they receive.

These clinics are open to any age 16 or older who lives, works or studies in Kenosha County. At present, Pfizer the only vaccine federally approved for distribution to 16- and 17-year olds.

“For anyone who has not yet had an opportunity become vaccinated or is still on the fence about it, these final weeks of our large-scale clinic availability are a great time to get it done,” Freiheit said. “It is now easier than ever to take this simple step to protect yourself and those around you from COVID-19.”

US Postal Service to lease building in Paddock Lake

The village of Paddock Lake has found a tenant for a building it owns adjacent to Village Hall..

The Village Board approved a 10-year lease with the United State Postal Service for the annex building. The building has been vacant since 2018 and has recently been offered for sale or lease.

The lease will be worth $368,000 in revenue for the village over its initial 10-year term, said village President Terry Burns.. The lease includes three possible five-year extensions.

The USPS is expected to initially use the building for rural route and package delivery staging, but eventually the building is also expected to house retail service, said village administrator Tim Popanda.

The USPS is expected to add on to the building and the parking lot, Popanda said.

The building was originally constructed in the 1980s as a doctor’s office. The village purchased the 5.1 acre property for $371,685 in 2007. The intent at that time was to incorporate about 4 acres of the property in a comprehensive outdoor recreation plan. Instead, the building was rented, including to The Sharing Center from 2008 to 2012. The last tenant left the building in 2018 and the village has been seeking a tenant or buyer since then.

“We’re glad there’s closure on that building,” Popanda said.
