Cleanup, Stabilization or Demolition Costly for Old Grain Elevator

The cost of stabilizing the former Door County Cooperative grain elevator, on Sturgeon Bay’s west side waterfront, has been pegged at between $139,000 to $148,000, according to numbers received by the city from several firms making bids. The city council will consider the numbers during its regular meeting on Tuesday. The council voted to seek estimates for a cleanup, stabilization or demolition of the old structure after Fire Chief Tim Dietman issued an order to lock down the building after following up on reports of a foul smell emanating from within. As far as cleanup and weatherization is concerned, one company says the job can be done for about $21,000, but another firm estimated the price tag at $33,000. And, taking the building down won’t be cheap. The two bids received projected the cost at $76,085 to $85,000. It should also be noted that one company is suggesting that an engineering design for structural stabilization should be done and would cost $15,000 to $25,000.
