Aside from some minor changes in the consent agenda and a couple other items, it could be déjà vu for Sturgeon Bay Common Council members and attendees of Tuesday’s meeting. The December 19 meeting ended abruptly when Council members Laurel Hauser and Barb Allmann left the chambers just before a vote could take place to approve a bid to dismantle, salvage, and store the granary, depriving the meeting of a quorum. That item returns to the agenda for a fifth straight meeting after a quorum could not be reached in three consecutive special sessions. The Common Council will also consider a resolution designating Sturgeon Bay as a Premier Resort Area, which would enact a 0.5 percent sales tax on tourist-related expenditures to raise money for infrastructure. The removal of two public comment periods and a raise for part-time firefighters also highlight the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting, which begins at noon.
