Sturgeon Bay To Review Water Weed Cutting




Tight budgets have municipalities looking at many different areas to possibly trim costs. Even underwater.

Over the next several months the City of Sturgeon Bay is going to be taking a fresh look at its water weed cutting program.

Harbor Commission Chairman Gary Nault says the commission talked about the program at its meeting Monday -- the first of several meetings he says will be devoted to taking a closer look at the annual effort to keep the bay's weeds from running amok.

"If there's ways to save money we will definitely look at that," says Nault. "But it's not a guarantee that we can do that. We may see that we want to spend more money and do more."

Nault says the program -- which includes cutting and some spraying -- costs the city in the neighborhood of $100,000 a year. He says weed cutting generally starts around Memorial Day and continues to around Labor Day.
