The future of the Sturgeon Bay Waterfront Redevelopment Authority could be determined when the city council meets again September 18th. Several new council members ran on a platform that included abolishing the controversial WRA. At Tuesday’s meeting of the city council member David Hayes asked for an update on efforts to replace the authority.
Hayes was told that Green Bay attorney James Kalny will present results of a study to the council at its next meeting, September 18th.
When the city council voted earlier to settle a lawsuit with hotel developer Robert Papke, the WRA, also a party to the litigation, opposed the settlement. Hayes has advocated to the abolition of the WRA both as a candidate for office and as a member of the city council.
