The Sturgeon Bay Common Council concluded Tuesday that city staff should continue working on ways it can address transportation funding locally. Sturgeon Bay Mayor Thad Birmingham told the council and the sparse crowd present at the meeting that they are currently looking at three different options: stay as is, have adjoining property owners assessed for the repairs, or institute a local registration fee. City Engineer Chad Shefchik says paved roads are currently at a 61-year replacement schedule and say it is up to the council to decide how they should tackle the issue.
Alderpersons David Ward, Stewart Fett, Ron Vandertie, and Kelly Catarozoli all vocalized their support during the discussion. You can listen to the full discussion online with this story.
