Mayor Birmingham issues final veto

Before his term ends, Sturgeon Bay Mayor Thad Birmingham has one last veto in him. After the Sturgeon Bay Common Council weighs in on a number of proposed ordinances, it will consider Birmingham’s veto of its decision to approve the development agreement between the city and the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society for the Teweles and Brandeis grain elevator. In the board agenda packet for Tuesday’s meeting Birmingham makes several cases for why the development agreement should be voided, including the lack of financial protections for the city, a change in the plan’s scope, and the lack of a suitable endowment. It would mark the third time this year Birmingham has issued a veto during his final months as the city’s mayor with the two previous being rejected by the Sturgeon Bay Common Council. The meeting will also be the last for Kelly Catarozoli, David Ward, and Barb Allmann as alderpersons after deciding not to run for another term. Tuesday’s meeting will begin at 7 p.m. inside the council chambers.
