Planning related to the expansion of the Door County Historical Museum in Sturgeon Bay could move a step forward if the Door County Board approves a recommendation during its meeting Tuesday morning. The resolution calls for the transfer of $40,000 in non-budgeted funds to pay for a consultant to develop a strategic plan and fundraising. In February, the county board agreed to transfer funding to pay for a limited term employee to do the work, but that option is no longer considered feasible. So far, more than a half a million dollars has been set aside to help defray the cost of future expansion plans at the museum estimated to be in the neighborhood of two million dollars. Approval of the $40,000 consulting fee will leave the account balance at just under $474,692.
