Council tackles new projects, water levels

Shoreline communities like Sturgeon Bay are being swamped with a host of issues regarding high water levels in the Great Lakes region. The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will consider a nearly $450,000 price tag to make shoreline repairs to Sunset Park. Estimates include the installation of man-made stone barriers called riprap and stepped revetment. Alderperson Kirstin Reeths requested a discussion of the lake level forecast over the next six months which is being projected to rise above the current record highs by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Tuesday's meeting will also discuss two projects that could be completed in the coming year. Cedar Corporation and SRF Consulting group will present its designs for a new promenade on the city's west waterfront between the Michigan and the Oregon Street bridges. Later in the meeting, the Sturgeon Bay Rotary Club is seeking approval to install a new dock and fishing pavilion at Little Lake after getting the OK from the city's Park and Recreation Committee. The meeting will begin in the council chambers at Sturgeon Bay City Hall at 7 p.m.
