Sturgeon Bay officially shrinks pot penalty in short meeting

A compact agenda made for one of the shortest Sturgeon Bay City Council meetings in recent history.  The 32-minute meeting opened with three public comments before consent agenda items were passed unanimously.  The common council did take action after the second reading of the ordinance to eliminate the fine for possession of marijuana on private property and to make penalties for possession on public property the same as those for open intoxicants.  The amended penalty provision passed by a 5-1 vote with Council member Gary Nault voting against it.



A second reading was also given to amending the Ethics Board structure/membership which will now allow the mayor to appoint alternates to the fixed board.  After a few future agenda items were brought up and committee chair reports were shared the brief city council meeting adjourned a little after 7:30 pm.
