You may have thought last year’s spike in boating was a temporary fix, but then you would be wrong. City of Sturgeon Bay City Administrator Josh VanLieshout said that in a budget planning session earlier in the week, they went through boat ramp revenue numbers to find that this summer has mightily outperformed the last two. So far, in 2021, boat ramp revenue is $6,000 more than it was in 2019 and 2020. VanLieshout says it’s an indicator of the outdoor interests people have picked up in the last year.
VanLieshout added that it seemed like Independence Day weekend in the city of Sturgeon Bay was successful.
