Developer Bob Papke accepted a settlement offer of $360,000 from the Sturgeon Bay Common Council on Papke’s lawsuit which originally sought over $500,000. The amount was found in a Public Records Request sought by DoorCountyDailyNews.com. Papke claimed the city did not tell him about issues concerning the ordinary high water mark where his planned hotel was expected to sit. According to a news release last Friday by City Administrator Josh Van Lieshout, Mayor Thad Birmingham has exercised his veto authority on the matter. The Common Council will reconsider the issue at the next regular meeting on December 18. A two-thirds vote (5 of 7) of the entire council is required to override the veto. The previous motion passed 5-2.
