STURGEON BAY, WI (Connor Harbit) -- According to one Sturgeon Bay councilperson, allowing for informal comments is one of the easiest ways to receive public input. Barbara Allmann, the alderperson for District 5, said she prefers to run her meetings as one would have a conversation at the kitchen table, with those in attendance able to speak up and be heard. Allmann said she enjoys hearing from those who take the time to come to the meetings.
Allmann most recently acted in her role as the chair for the Protection and Services Committee. On Thursday, the three-person committee looked at a few topics including limiting vaping for minors and the lack of housing in the Sturgeon Bay area due to rentals and Airbnb.
