There will be plenty of options for the Sturgeon Bay Common Council when it deliberates on who should fill the vacant District 2 seat next week. Four candidates submitted paperwork by the October 8th deadline, says City Clerk Stephanie Reinhardt. The slate includes Stephen Day, Randy Morrow, Caitlin Oleson, and Dennis Statz.
The plan is for each candidate to introduce themselves before the council at Tuesday’s meeting, with a new member selected before the panel adjourns for the evening. The person chosen will serve out the rest of the term. District 2 just had an election in April, so the next election will not be until the spring of 2022.
The Common Council has a busy slate over the next several weeks, including finalizing a budget for the next fiscal year. At a workshop last week, the proposed levy increase was dropped from over six percent to 3.7 percent.
