Sturgeon Bay’s Ad Hoc Committee on Funding for Local Streets and Infrastructure will open the floor to comment on improving city streets and its funding during a listening session planned for Tuesday. The committee was formed earlier this year after studies showed the deteriorating status of the city’s roadways, which due to funding were only getting resurfaced every 55 years. Committee chairperson David Ward hopes residents will come to the general listening session to help the committee answer three questions.
Ward expects there to be at least three more opportunities for residents to voice their opinion on street improvements and funding, with future meetings providing a more narrow focus. Tuesday’s listening session begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Sturgeon Bay Common Council Chambers.
