Kenosha city officials are preparing for unrest as they wait for the Kenosha County district attorney to make a decision in the police shooting of Jacob Blake.  

On Monday, the Kenosha City Council is expected to vote on a resolution put forward by Mayor John Antaramian that, if approved, would create an emergency declaration for the city “regarding potential civil unrest" in the event DA Michael Graveley makes a decision within the first two full weeks of January.  

Graveley has said he would make an announcement during that time frame but has not been more specific.

The resolution cites the violent protests that took place in late August after Blake was shot by Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey on Aug. 23. The shooting left Blake paralyzed.
