Tuesday’s Sturgeon Bay Common Council meeting will feature a public hearing on some upcoming improvements taking place on the city’s east side. The city is planning on making street improvements and installing sidewalks on South 16th Place and South 18th Avenue and could levy special assessments on the affected property owners. City engineer Chad Shefchik told the Common Council at its last meeting why the improvements are needed after Door County Medical Center requested sidewalks be installed on their property, which will be covered by the hospital.
Mayor Thad Birmingham mentioned at the last meeting that Tuesday could mark the introduction of a new committee designated to discuss the health of the city’s roads and how to fund future improvements. Tuesday’s meeting is set to begin at noon inside the council chambers at city hall.
