A quick meeting of the Sturgeon Bay city council adjourned in recognition of one of its long-serving members. Ron Vandertie has represented District 2 since 2002 and opted not to seek re-election. Mayor Thad Birmingham recognized Vandertie for his years as a member of the Sturgeon Bay fire department as well as city council.
Vandertie cited a long list of council members with whom he served.
Before adjourning, Mayor Birmingham cautioned people to not believe everything they read on FaceBook. He refuted recent online comments about city finances and allocation of funds, saying the city is and always has been in very good financial condition.
