Some Sturgeon Bay property owners are getting a more convenient way to pay for costly sidewalk improvements. Changes are also expected in the way payment is made for future sidewalk work. Concerns were raised this week by some homeowners on North 7th Avenue about repaying the costs of curb, gutter, and sidewalk work along their property. Board of Public Works Chair Helen Bacon says the board will allow the property owner to defer the costs. She adds that some changes are being proposed to help other property owners understand the scope, cost, and payment for future improvements.
Those proposals will go before the Sturgeon Bay Common Council when it meets on September 3rd.
