Door County Supervisors approve Younkers purchase plan

Door County is moving forward with the purchase of the former Younkers Furniture store on 4th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay.  The Door County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the transfer of $505,000 in undesignated funds to a designated account for the purchase. The county wants the vacant store for the Door County Historical Museum archives.  Supervisor Linda Watt, who serves on the Museum and Archives Committee says the current storage of those materials in a county-owned house near the museum is putting them at risk.



The Board of Supervisors also indicated repairs needed for the Younkers building would come from an account previously designated for a permanent county archive facility.
