The Sturgeon Bay Common Council will consider the possibilities of spending cuts and other budget adjustments to cope with the impact of the COVID19 pandemic. The city's Finance/Purchasing and Building Committee is forwarding an audit to the full council for consideration. That includes proposed budget amendments drawn up by City Finance Director/City Treasurer Val Clarizio and the Emergency Management team made up of city department heads over the past several weeks. Council member Helen Bacon says the audit offers Sturgeon Bay spending options to follow as the pandemic runs its course.
The audit is expected to be taken up by the Sturgeon Bay Common Council when it meets on May 5th in the common council chambers on Michigan Street. The chambers are expected to be open to the public only for observation and comment on agenda items. All council meetings are broadcast via Sturgeon Bay Public Access Television online.
