The future of the Teweles & Brandeis granary building remains in doubt as four new Sturgeon Bay council members and a new mayor will be sworn into office next Friday. David Ward, who won a convincing mayoral election by claiming two-thirds of the votes last Tuesday, says although he won’t be part of the voting council he believes two answers must be answered before moving forward on the city’s involvement with the granary.
Ward says he does not believe $130,000 for maintenance and operations is enough for a 118-year old building. District 7 councilmember Laurel Hauser, who just lost a close election that will be recounted, says the development agreement will protect the city.
Hauser compares the granary to the new senior center. She says all will be forgotten when the granary is beautifully refurbished in a few years without the need for taxpayer money.
