Demolition efforts have begun at the Chrysler engine plant in Kenosha that closed down two years ago.

A Kenosha News report says crews began tearing down some of the larger buildings this week. Kenosha Mayor Keith Bosman says the demolition will continue for five or six months until the property is completely flat.

Once the demolition is complete, the city has the option of taking control of the property. If it did it would be responsible for future development and cleanup of the site. Kenosha has received about $16 million in federal and state funding to assist with those efforts.

Cleanup and remediation would take about 18 months.

Bosman says he'd like to see the site used for some sort of industrial development.
