Council Awards Contract to Dismantle Grain Elevator

The Sturgeon Bay City Council has voted to accept a contract to dismantle, salvage and store the old grain elevator on the city’s waterfront. The action happened during the council’s regular meeting at city hall Tuesday afternoon. After the original motion to move forward and accept the low bid was made, a second motion to table action was made. That motion was defeated on a four to three vote…

City Attorney Randy Nesbitt says the motion to award the contract was proper because a quorum of five council-members was in effect at the time…

The city council had not been able to vote on the bid previously because only four members were on hand affecting several special meetings. In another case, two alder-persons walked out of a regular meeting prior to a vote on the matter. Nesbitt also pointed out that action on an ordinance change related to bonding of the clerk and treasurer was approved because a quorum still existed at the time…

As things stand now, the structure will be deconstructed by Kiesow Enterprises of Reedsville at a cost of just over $66,000.
