PRATT not likely in Sturgeon Bay

The city of Sturgeon Bay will apparently need another option when it comes to funding future city street improvements.  City voters approved a one-half percent sales tax increase to address transportation projects in a non-binding referendum last year.  State legislation is needed to allow the collection of additional sales tax to implement a Premier Resort Area Tax. State Rep. Joel Kitchens says he tried to amend the state budget to allow the PRATT in Sturgeon Bay but it failed in the Joint Finance Committee.

 

 

Kitchens adds that unfortunately there is not another route to go as far as through the state for a remedy.  He says the PRATT was the best option for Sturgeon Bay to pursue, but his efforts met with too much opposition.
