Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Residents are invited to a listening session Wednesday at Sturtevant Village Hall with Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave.

The session will run from 4 to 6 p.m. at Village Hall, 2801 89th Street, and will include just about any topic citizens want to discuss.

Delagrave also plans to have Racine County Register of Deeds Tyson Fettes and Racine County Supervisor Kay Buske, who represents Sturtevant on the county board.

The county executive noted that Sturtevant has a lot of good news to share; the closure of one development district that’s lowering taxes across the board and adding jobs to the area, the creation of a new development district along the Highway 11 corridor, and the village’s support of the Rails to Trails program that converts defunct railroad lines into bike and walking trails.

Delagrave has been scheduling listening sessions throughout Racine County, including dates earlier this summer in Caledonia and Union Grove.
