As anticipated, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council, meeting as a committee of the whole, set in motion the process that is expected to lead to the adoption of a $13.5 million city budget during a special meeting Monday afternoon. After a budget update, a tentative tax levy of $6,258,970 was set. As such, the levy reflects an increase of 2.8% and does not include the city’s tax incremental districts. During the special meeting, a public hearing on the budget was scheduled for 4PM on November 10th. At that time, council-members are expected to approve the city budget as presented.
