The future home of the tugboats was just one of the issues Sturgeon Bay Common Council District 2 candidates David Hayes and Bob Starr discussed during their over 60-minute forum aired on 104.1 WRLU Tuesday morning. Hayes says he did not read the report on other locations for the tugboats prior to the forum but believes the tugs should stay put as a reminder to visitors of Sturgeon Bay’s working waterfront.
Starr says the city bought the property near where the tugs are docked with the hope that one day it would be redeveloped and has leased the area to Selvick Marine Towing as a short-term solution for the business.
