UPDATE: The JT followed our tip and is on the story. They interviewed Becker and Mount Pleasant President Carolyn Milkie and found that the communities want to "straighten out" their borders. As our commenters have pointed out, the issue is more likely centered around high-crime neighborhoods that the village doesn't want to deal with any more. But at what price will Racine take on these resource-intensive areas? Perhaps the former Case plant?
Racine Mayor Gary Becker and Mount Pleasant officials are meeting to discuss changes to the communities' borders.
Preliminary talks would "straighten out" the borders between the communities and possibly result in the city receiving more land in exchange for taking on high-crime areas that are currently in the village.
The discussions are preliminary and no decisions have been made on the borders. City Council members have been asked not to discuss the matter with the media.
