A divided Sturgeon Bay city council meeting ended Tuesday with community activist Christie MacDonald announcing a recall effort against Mayor Thad Birmingham.
MacDonald, speaking during the public comment period near the end of the meeting, said that on the same day the Wisconsin Historical Society is considering placing Sturgeon Bay’s granary on the National Register of Historic Places the mayor is talking about getting bids to tear it down. She reprimanded the mayor before stating her intention to start the recall campaign.
Earlier, the council voted unanimously to get bids on tearing down or re-using the granary.
