In the first step of a process that could lead to two way traffic on all downtown streets in Sturgeon Bay, the city council Tuesday evening decided to permanently mark Third Avenue as a two way street. Alderman Bob Schlicht, chairman of the parking & traffic committee, said the recommendation on Third Avenue was part of the larger task of determining how traffic should be configured in that part of the city. Schlicht said the public will be invited to add its input to the question of traffic flow on Fourth Avenue & Louisiana & Kentucky Streets. A tentative date for the public hearing on the matter is December 20th.
The first reading of an ordinance related to the use synthetic cocaine was approved as presented. Sturgeon Bay Police Captain Dan Brinkman said the material, commonly referred to as “bath salts”, had been recently found in the city. Brinkman said the new measure, when approved, would be used in combination with a ordinance already on the books having to do with synthetic marijuana.
