Gag order on non-residents rejected by Sturgeon Bay city council

If you're a Sturgeon Bay business owner but not a resident of the city you almost lost your ability to speak during the public comment section of city council meetings.

 

A recommendation from the Community Protection and Services committee would have changed the long-standing policy of public comment at council meetings to only citizens of the city of Sturgeon Bay.
 
That proposal was opposed by council member Kelly Avenson.  Her motion to remove the language about public comment to city residents was adopted with only council member Gary Nault opposed. Nault argued in favor of restricting the ability to comment to city residents only.
 

 

 
Avenson said that giving people an opportunity to be heard is an important part of the job of an elected official.
