The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will spend a large portion of its Tuesday evening meeting getting its newest members situated for the upcoming year. David Ward, Kirstin McFarlin-Reeths, Dan Williams, Gary Nault, and Helen Bacon will take their respective seats after saluting the service of the common council’s outgoing members. Among Ward’s first duties as mayor will be appointing new members to some of the city’s committees before the council weighs in on ordinances involving the code of conduct, ethics, and accessory buildings. The Sturgeon Bay Common Council is also scheduled to meet in closed session to discuss its possible involvement in a lawsuit regarding the Department of Natural Resources’ determination of the Ordinary High Water Mark on the city’s west side. The meeting begins in the council chambers at 7 p.m.
