An attorney representing the City of Sturgeon Bay informed council members moments ago that Fire Chief Tim Dietman has gone to court asking that efforts by the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society to save the west-side waterfront granary be blocked. Dietman’s motion questions whether the historical society has the right to block his order to raze the granary by November 18, 2017.
The council heard a legal summary prepared by Attorney James Kalny on behalf of the city. The council went into closed session at 1:35 p.m. to discuss efforts to save the granary.
