Due to the New Year’s Day holiday, the Sturgeon Bay common council will be holding a rare Wednesday evening session for their first meeting of 2019. Agenda items to be considered include a recommendation from the Community Protection & Services Committee to put forth a non-binding referendum regarding marijuana. It would gauge public opinion with a two-part question on legalizing cannabis for medicinal and recreational use for those 21 years or older. The council will also meet in closed session with legal counsel in regards to the lawsuit between the city and Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront. The Sturgeon Bay common council meeting will begin at 7 o’clock Wednesday evening in Council Chambers at City Hall.
