An additional $150,000 for the planned Cana Island Interpretive Center will allow for more flexible budgeting by making it easier to add or remove items from the project as needed. The Door County Board of Supervisors approved additional funds to the $365,000 already allocated for the project. Door County Facilities and Parks Manager Wayne Spritka compares that approach to funding and planning a new home.
Door County owns the island and lighthouse and has a management contract with the Door County Maritime Museum to operate it during the summer. All funds for Cana Island are in a segregated account so that no general fund monies are spent on the property.
