Fate of Grain Elevator Could be Back on City Council Agenda

The future of the old grain elevator on Sturgeon Bay’s west side waterfront could be determined Tuesday afternoon when the city council meets in regular session. An agenda item on a contract to raze and remove the 116-year old structure at 92 East Maple Street, which was tabled at the last council meeting, could be brought back for action again. The matter was tabled after the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society offered to pay for a study into the stability of the structure which has been under a 30-day demolition order issued by Fire Chief Tim Dietman since October 18th. Chief Dietman says the building is structurally unsound and, as such, must come down. A firm in Green Bay, Peters Concrete Company, says it can do the job for just under $54,000. If the tabling action is removed, the council will consider whether or not the structure should be razed and removed. Earlier in the meeting, council-members will go behind closed doors to consider the fire chief’s order and a request from the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society for a hearing on the matter.
