Deconstruction of Granary Expected to be on Next Council Agenda

The matter of the fate of the old grain elevator on Sturgeon Bay’s west side waterfront keeps being revisited. Currently, the 116-year old structure is scheduled to be disassembled and stored in keeping with a decision by the city council on a recent four to three vote. However, during comment periods at Tuesday’s city council meeting, several speakers asked that the structure be saved. Several of the individuals, members of the waterfront friends group and the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society, have spoken before. There was no response. Typically, the council does not comment during the public comment segment of its meetings. Word out of city hall is that bids solicited from firms willing to take down the structure were expected Wednesday with a recommendation presented at the council’s next session. Unless a majority on the legislative body support a change, the action on the bids is expected.
