High water, workforce shortage among mayor's concerns

Even with the positive momentum going on in the community on a number of different fronts, Sturgeon Bay Mayor David Ward acknowledges there are some concerns to be addressed in 2020. Like many communities, Sturgeon Bay is dealing with the damage being caused by record high-water levels in the area. Ward says fixes will need to be made.

The community is also dealing with not having enough people to fill the open positions available in the area, especially at manufacturers located in the city’s industrial park. Ward hopes the Live Door County campaign recently unveiled by the Door County Economic Development Corporation helps give employee recruitment efforts a boost.

Increasing retail opportunities and the housing supply are other challenges Ward would like to tackle more in-depth during the coming year.
