The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society is offering to cover up to $75,000 of demolition costs for the granary if a third-party structural engineer declares the building cannot be saved. The announcement came on the eve of the Sturgeon Bay Common Council’s decision on whether to follow through on a raze order issued by Fire Chief Tim Dietman on October 17 or to accept over one million dollars from donors to save it from demolition. Christie Weber from the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society says this offer has both historic preservation and public safety in mind.
