The Sturgeon Bay City Council went into closed session Tuesday afternoon to negotiate an agreement with developers of property owned by a controversial member of the Sturgeon Bay Waterfront Redevelopment Authority. Thomas “Cap” Wulf is proposing a four-story commercial and residential development at 49 North Madison Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. Wulf was found guilty of using a position of public trust for personal gain while a member of the Sturgeon Bay city council several years ago.
DoorCountyDailyNews.com has learned Wulf has told members of the Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission he may be an investor in the Madison Avenue project and that he has been asked about providing heating and cooling contract work if the development is approved. At Tuesday’s Sturgeon Bay City Council meeting Scott Moore opposed city tax dollars being used for Wulf’s development.
Wulf was also convicted of disorderly conduct after an incident at a downtown business involving former Mayor Dennis McIntosh and is currently under a restraining order resulting from his outburst.
Even though Wulf was found guilty of using his position of public trust for personal gain in the past he recently voted to include his own property in the TIF district on Sturgeon Bay’s west side.
