The City of Sturgeon Bay has a new website look! Same address (www.sturgeonbaywi.org), just a new look with some exciting new features! Take some time to browse around the site! You're going to enjoy the ease and look of the new site!

The alley between the old Yonkers and the Post Office will be closed for at least a few weeks to allow for removal of the overhead walkway and the filling of a tunnel beneath the alley. The postal drop box has been relocated to 4th Ave. The parking spaces between the Post Office parking lot and Michigan Ave. have been changed to temporary parking for the drop box. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Joint Informational Release- Face Covering Order

Our approach has been and will continue to be to help educate, help clarify questions relating to the order, consult with the proper governing authority, and evaluate each complaint on a case by case basis. Compliance by the public is of course the avenue we have asked of our citizens in all matters during the pandemic and that has not changed.

We encourage everyone to take precautions to keep themselves and others safe. We also understand and recognize different viewpoints and we are doing everything we can to protect people from becoming sick, while also protecting the individual rights of our citizens.

In order to provide some clarification, please be advised Door County Law Enforcement simply doesn’t have the personnel available to respond to complaints of individuals violating the Governor’s mandate. Door County Law Enforcement will continue to respond to reports or complaints from a business owner, manager or other premise owner who has already requested that an individual leave a premise for failing to comply with the face covering mandate as it relates to that specific premise. We anticipate that these circumstances will be rare, but enforcement is necessary under these circumstances because they are situations where a disturbance may be likely. This enforcement response is consistent with most, if not all, of the other law enforcement agencies throughout Northeast Wisconsin.

Please do not contact the Door County Communications Center to report people not wearing face coverings, as they, too, are very busy handling urgent law enforcement, EMS, and fire-related calls.

We’ve already received numerous calls on what should be done if an individual isn’t wearing a face covering. The Governor’s FAQs related to this order states as follows:
What do I do if I see someone not wearing a mask, even though they should be? Nothing. Some people have conditions or circumstances that would make wearing a cloth face covering difficult or dangerous. Just wear your mask and stay six feet away.

At this time, it is not clear who the Governor has designated to be responsible for the primary enforcement of the face covering mandate. We anticipate the Governor’s Office and/or the Wisconsin Attorney General’s office will provide clarification regarding the enforcement of the Governor’s executive order within the next few days.

Please know, during this time of uncertainty for individuals and families, we will do our best to offer the services and support our community needs. We appreciate the willingness of our citizens to comply with the order and recommendations of the various agencies overseeing this unprecedented health emergency, and for doing their part to help our community navigate through this difficult time.

Construction Update: Project 2003 – 2020 Street Crack Sealing Program

This morning American Pavement Solutions, Inc. will begin work on Project 2003 – 2020 Street Crack Sealing Program. This project involves crack sealing on multiple roadways and parking lots throughout the City of Sturgeon Bay. Attached are maps that show the affected roadways and they are labeled to show an approximate order that they will be worked on. You may see signs or barricades that look to restrict parking as needed so that the contractor can properly complete their work. However, for the most part, all of the affected roadways will remain open to traffic while the work is taking place. There will be short periods of time when 1 lane is closed or parking is prohibited. For the safety of the general public and installation crews please avoid the affected roadway areas while the work is taking place if possible. Dry conditions are required for proper installation of the crack sealant so hopefully Mother Nature cooperates to allow for a timely completion.

Thanks,

Chad Shefchik

Construction Update: Mill & Pave Roadways

The following roadways are currently under construction:
- W Pine Street from S Lansing Ave to S Hudson Ave
- S Hudson Ave from W Maple Street to W Pine Street

This week the contractor completed all of the concrete curbing and sidewalk sections that were scheduled for replacement. In the next week or two they will start working on the remaining topsoil & grass seed restorations. Tentatively, Northeast Asphalt is scheduled to remove the existing asphalt, regrade the existing base, and place the new asphalt surface the week of August 10th. Weather the next couple of weeks could dictate changes to the schedule so I will send future updates as needed.

Thanks,

Enjoy the evening and be safe!

City of Sturgeon Bay Looks to Repair Shoreline Damage, Provides Health and Safety Measures for Sturgeon Bay Farmers Market

The City of Sturgeon Bay is working to protect Sunset Park’s shoreline after high water and strong winds throughout the fall and spring have caused significant erosion. This erosion, which has removed a significant portion of Sunset’s beach area and lawn and caused several trees growing on the edges of the park to fall into the water, will continue to damage the park if there is no intervention.

In response, the Common Council has altered its budget to address this complication. The city plans to place heavy rip rap and other preventative measures in the park to prevent erosion. In the coming weeks the Council will allow the project to go to bid and will award a contract for repairs to limit further erosion of Sturgeon Bay. Mayor David Ward said of the project, “We are looking to preserve land in a timely manner that will promote both access to waterfront areas of Sturgeon Bay and a long-term solution as water levels remain high.” On-land interventions will be used to minimize cost.

On July 4th, 2020 the Farmer’s Market at Market Square in Sturgeon Bay will reopen to near normal operations. We will provide two spaces between vendors to make this work while adhering to the recommendations from the WI Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Most vendors will not be in their typical spaces, this is due to the need to provide adequate space between the vendors.

Because of additional spacing, there will also be more vendors on Nebraska Street, which will be closed, and vendors will likely not be in their previous spaces. Samples, customers touching food items before sale, self-help stations, are all prohibited. Two hand wash stations will be provided to customers.

Vendors are responsible for wearing single use gloves when handling produce, having two or more people working so that a person handling money does not handle any food items, using single use packages and bags, and disinfecting tables and tablecloths both before the market and frequently during the market.

According to Mike Barker, the Municipal Services Director for Sturgeon Bay, “the safety of customers and vendors will always be our first priority and patience during this time is key in order for us to return to our normal operations. These changes will be evaluated frequently and may be loosened as they are deemed appropriate throughout the season.”

There are four boat trailers parked at the south edge of the parking lot at Sawyer Park. This is not a storage lot and overnight parking is not authorized. City Ordinance 7.08 states "whenever any motor vehicle, trailer or semitrailer has been parked or stored for more than 48 hours, the vehicle is deemed abandoned and constitutes a public nuisance". If these trailers are not removed by the owner by Monday they will be removed by the City. If you own one of the trailers please contact the Director of Municipal Services at 746-6922. Thank you.

The City of Sturgeon Bay garbage and recycling WILL NOT be affected by the Fourth of July holiday. All collections will be on a normal schedule.

Construction Update: Mill & Pave Roadways

The following roadways are currently under construction:
- W Pine Street from S Lansing Ave to S Hudson Ave
- S Hudson Ave from W Maple Street to W Pine Street

We are coming down the home stretch! These are the last 2 roadways that remain to complete all of our 2020 Roadway Replacement Projects. Last week WPS finished all of the gas line replacement activities, and this week Martell Construction, Inc. started removing all of the concrete curbing and sidewalk sections scheduled for replacement. If things go well they should complete the removals on Monday, and if the weather cooperates the pouring crews will begin the concrete replacements early next week.

As a reminder: For the safety of all parties involved please use alternative routes when possible. Travel within the construction project areas is not intended for the general public, it is intended exclusively for the residents who live along the roadways under construction.

Have a good Holiday weekend!

Thanks,

The City of Sturgeon Bay is happy to announce that the farmers market will be back to "near normal" operation beginning Saturday the 4th of July. I have attached a file of our rules that were sent out to the vendors. Please note that most of the vendors will not be in their typical location, this is due to added space between the booths. Come down to support our local farmers and crafters this Saturday!

Congratulations Chief Porter!
