KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - The city of Kenosha has acquired the land where Chrysler used to build cars and engines.

Monday night, the City Council voted to accept a title for 109 acres.

The plant ran for decades until it shut down for good three years ago. Now, the city and state will spend around $30 million to clean up the site.

Mayor Keith Bosman says there are no exact plans for the property right now. He expects it to be a business park in the future.

Officials say it could take 5 to 7 years to clean up the old Chrysler property.

Most of the buildings are gone, but City Administrator Frank Pacetti says there are still tons of concrete and other things to be removed.
