Kenosha City Council to consider sex offender residency ordinance

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - The Kenosha City Council is to consider tonight an ordinance that would restrict where convicted sex offenders could live there.

It would prohibit convicted offenders who were not previously from Kenosha from living within 2,500 feet of all schools, churches, parks, trails, day cares, places of worship or wherever children gather.

The limit would be 500 feet for convicted sex offenders who already lived in Kenosha.

No offender would be able to live within six blocks of another registered offender.

And registered offenders would be required to notify the alderman of the district they move into.
