Granary site approval waiting on lakebed lease 

The City of Sturgeon Bay is hopefully closer to getting state approval of the Teweles & Brandeis Grain Elevator site on the west side waterfront.  City Administrator Josh Van Lieshout says the city received approval from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in June on the submerged lakebed lease.  The city is working on drafting a lease with the Bureau of Commissioners of Public Lands.  Van Lieshout has a phone meeting Wednesday with state officials to move the process forward.   After the terms of the lease are defined, the Sturgeon Bay Common Council and Board of Commissioners of Public Lands must approve it before the City of Sturgeon Bay can enter into a sublease with the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society.  Shawn Fairchild of the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society told that the group is waiting on the completion of the lease before SMET construction proceeds with the project on behalf of the SBHS.
