The pending lawsuit between the city of Sturgeon Bay and the Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront expects to take up most of the time during Tuesday’s Common Council meeting. After considering the city’s bills and the consent agenda, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council will consider the insurance coverage for its litigation against the Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront, which dates back to when the group first filed its federal lawsuit in September of 2015. No additional information about the consideration concerning the insurance coverage has been made public since the city posted the council agenda packet on Friday. The council will end the meeting in closed session to discuss strategy with the city’s legal counsel. Judge Raymond Huber of Waupaca County denied the summary judgments of both the city and the group last Tuesday, setting the stage for the trial to begin on February 9.
