Labor Day Closure

In observance of Labor Day, the Village/Town Hall will be closed on Monday Sept. 2, 2019.

Annual Picnic in the Park


The Kenosha County Parks is holding its annual picnic Aug. 24 at Petrifying Springs County Park, near the Biergarten at the south end of the park. The event, which starts at 1:30 p.m., is free.

The daylong event features food trucks, five bounce houses, many performances including a fire breathing act, and what is anticipated to be the largest performance of "Baby Shark" in the county. The festivities will culminate in a fireworks show at dusk. 

Fire departments trains for hazmat situation



When a container of anhydrous ammonia sprung a leak over the state line this past spring, the poisonous gas that spread caused injuries to motorists and firefighters and forced the closure of schools in the area. About a dozen people found themselves in the hospital from exposure to the gas.


In an effort to be prepared for any accident involving the chemical commonly used as a fertilizer in farms around Somers, the Fire Department included it in its annual hazardous material training held June 4 on the Jerry Smith farm. 


Highways H and KR updates

Traffic patterns on Highway H and KR are scheduled to change Aug. 10 as part of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) roads project linked to Foxconn.


Highway KR, to the west of Highway H, is scheduled to reopen.

Traffic on Highway KR, between East Frontage Road and Highway H, will shift to the north onto the newly paved westbound lanes while crews work to reconstruct the eastbound lanes.

Access to 100th Ave. and 113th Ave. from Highway KR, will not be available during this stage of construction.
