City to Release Hotel Development Agreement

The development agreement related to tax incremental district four and the construction of a new hotel on Sturgeon Bay’s west side waterfront is expected to be released sometime in the near future. The city council went behind closed doors Tuesday to talk about correspondence from Midwest Environmental Advocates which had demanded the documents and threatened litigation, saying the city was violating the open records statute. During discussion in open session, Aldermen Kelly Catarozoli and Will Gregory, opponents of the hotel project, said the executive session wasn’t needed. City Attorney Randy Nesbitt said discussion on the request to release the development agreement documents was appropriate for a closed session. Council members voted five to two, with Catarozoli and Gregory objecting, to go behind closed doors. The documents in question are expected to be released within ten days.
