The Kenosha City Council unanimously approved a resolution Monday to borrow more than $4.7 million from the federal government to help finance a midtown “super fire station.” The loan will be paid back over a 20-year period with the use of Community Development Block Grant funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, at about $250,000 a year. Loan approval could come yet this year. Under the proposal, two older city fire stations would close and be merged into a station on the site of the shuttered Bain Elementary School, 2210 52nd St., which must be razed. The two stations considered for closure: Station 3, 2121 Roosevelt Road, and Station 5, 2125 Washington Road.
