Once again, Sioux Falls taxpayers are paying the piper and gettin’ no credit;
A highly anticipated Sioux Falls community ice facility will be named the Scheels IcePlex, after a substantial donation from the sports store on Thursday.
Scheels donated $750,000 toward the new multi-rink ice facility set to be built at the Sanford Sports Complex.
The announcement comes on the heels of an action by the Sioux Falls City Council to give $1.5 million of their budget to the facility next year.
While I think it is fantastic that the ISA has been raising private funds, I think, since taxpayers are giving twice as much as Scheels, our name should be on the building. There are plenty of advertising opportunities inside the facility for retailers like Scheels.
