The first step to restoring Sturgeon Bay’s Teweles and Brandeis grain elevator is now complete. Crews have powerwashed the building to get rid of animal droppings and fermenting grain from the structure walls. Fishing lines and decoys have been placed to hopefully keep birds away from creating future issues and repairs on the building’s grain bins have also begun. Contractor Pat Drury says they are waiting on a structural engineer to see what needs to be replaced moving forward.
Drury hopes to have a final game plan for what is happening to the former granary by the end of the year.
