A parcel of land near Egg Harbor Road in Sturgeon Bay could provide the city several different options if it chooses to acquire it during Tuesday’s common council meeting. Door County officials foreclosed on the property owned by Yvonne Simon back on March 30 due to back taxes owed. The city has been working with the county since then to acquire the land for just over $19,000 with $809 coming back as a part of an outstanding special assessment. According to the executive summary included in the common council agenda packet, a portion of the parcel could be used for stormwater detention while another part could be sold or used for public street access. The action is being reconsidered after the common council voted 4-3 on April 17 to get more information on whether or not the parcel would be beneficial for the city. The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will meet inside its chambers for the meeting beginning at 7 p.m.
