Fix It: Kemper Center gazeboBY BRIAN PASSINO

Today’s problem: Linda Zanot contacted Fix It about the condition of the gazebo that sits near the bike trail on the grounds of the Kemper Center, a Kenosha county park.

Zanot wrote, “There is a small gazebo on the lakeshore between Kemper and Anderson Arts Center. It looks like it was just plunked there for no good reason as there aren’t even any benches inside that would make sitting and enjoying the scenery comfortable. It is in a sad state of disrepair. A day’s worth of painting and weed whacking would take care of it. And, the addition of a bench or two inside would be welcome. I bet folks would actually use it then.”
