The construction on the alleys between Wrigley Drive and Center Street has begun. Meade has started cutting the surface of the alley and preparing it for We Energies, AT&T, and Alliant to come in and improve the fiber optics and technical support for the businesses along Main Street and the lake. This entire project may take several months to complete and will most certainly be a big inconvenience to business when it comes to delivery and parking, especially because of Main Street being torn up for a complete rebuild.
A child was bitten.
Last Sunday was a beautiful spring-like day that ended up not so beautiful for a young child, the child’s family, as well as for a dog and his owner. A lot of details are missing from this story, so what really happened is unclear. At approximately one thirty in the afternoon, on Sunday, March 4th, at the 1100 block of Center Street, a child was attacked and bitten by a dog. The dog and the owner remain unknown. After the attack, the owner and the dog fled the scene. The dog is described as a medium sized white dog with brown spots. The description of the dog owner is vague. He is around fifty or sixty years old, with a green hat, and driving a black car. The Lake Geneva Police Department posted this story on its Facebook page looking for any help in identifying this person and dog. The fact that a child was hurt is everyone’s main concern. If you have any information, please let the Lake Geneva Police Department know. You can private message the police department or call (262)248-4455 and you can remain anonymous.
