Beach clean up Song and Dance

 

So I went to Mayor of Racine John Dickert’s press event. A fair number of folks there too bad out of the near 25 there only 2 or three were members of the Public.

This was held to announce that the City of Racine would benefit from  an EPA Grant of 2.6 Million as part of  Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grants NOTE this is shared with 14 other locations at  no time did  $$ for Racine was told.  as in the amount we would get to use or invested in a study for Racine. be interesting how this gets spun. It is Mayor John Dicket so your guess is as good as mine.

AS the EPA and the DNR was at the beach I did not see anyone from the Root River Council to include Supervisor Osterman who if there would be a great link to Racine County and the Root River Project Root Works. A staffer from Sen Johnson was in attendance  and I do hope the Mayor’s Neck is not hurting him this morning I have not seen someones neck turn like that since the Exorcist. as he took note of her being there.

As this is a good thing for Racine in fixing up the Beach to help keep Lake Michigan clean  and this does help folks come here because of the lake.

So if we just dived the cash by 15 Racine will get about 170,000 not bad. would have been nice to know the amount at the event.

He took questions from the press so I was not able to ask any yet… but If I could have] I would have asked him how he plans to keep the Lake and the Beaches of Racine clean from the issues of 8-10 Million Gallons of “Treated Sewage” coming down the Root River.

I also would have asked him about if a bit of cash be worth ending Racine’s beaches.
