Recent developments affecting Sturgeon Bay’s west waterfront will be discussed in closed session when the city’s common council reconvenes on Tuesday. According to the meeting agenda, the council will refer to its legal counsel regarding the development agreement with Bob Papke, who pulled out of the project over a week ago and is currently suing the city for over $550,000 in damages. A possible settlement between the city and the Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront will also be discussed after two days of negotiating last week in Madison. The closed session will conclude with the discussion of purchasing property within the Waterfront Redevelopment District. The meeting, which begins at noon inside the council chambers, will also cover the city’s 2016 financial audit report and the annexation of two parcels of land from the town of Nasewaupee.
