The City of Sturgeon Bay Finance/Purchasing & Building Committee approved the final two pieces of the puzzle to allow the granary to move to the west side on Monday. At a special meeting held Thursday morning, the staging site plan for the temporary relocation of the Teweles & Brandeis Grain Elevator and the stability of the structure was unanimously voted on by the Finance Committee. Pat Drury, the original contractor who moved the Granary across the bridge last year, says he has no questions about the structural integrity of the granary, which he calls one of the strongest buildings in Sturgeon Bay.
Christie Weber, President of the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation, shared the cost of the restoration to date.
Finance Committee Chair Helen Bacon closed the meeting by recommending that the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society Foundation hire an Independent Project Manager to help prevent “eleventh” hour decisions being made on short notice in the future.
