Discussion regarding the Premier Resort Area Tax and Waterfront Redevelopment Authority makes a return appearance to the agenda Tuesday night when the Sturgeon Bay Common Council convenes for its scheduled meeting. A resolution to adopt the PRAT was tabled after council member Kelly Catarozoli asked for clarification on what the tax would actually cover if the Wisconsin Legislature allows it to be instituted. A vote to dissolve the WRA was postponed due to the absence of City Attorney Randy Nesbitt. In a letter written on April 23 to city administrator Josh VanLieshout, Mayor Thad Birmingham, and WRA chairperson Thomas Herlache, Nesbitt cited perceived ethics issues as a reason to not provide legal guidance for this issue. VanLieshout told DoorCountyDailyNews.com that the Common Council will have to decide on how to proceed. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. inside the Council chambers.
