The Sioux Falls City Council Fiscal Committee had a special working session for a reason we really haven’t figured out on February 6, 2017. Normally these meetings are recorded in Carnegie’s main chamber, and it would have been helpful to see the charts, etc. on the big screen. Prairie View Prevention is asking for assistance from the town’s budget to continue their work with at risk kids.
For some reason we can’t get video or audio recordings on several boards and commissions in Sioux Falls so the Fiscal Committee decides to drive the point home with this poorly conceived plan. They hold these meetings in a room with so much white noise it is hard to hear much less record in. If you are not sitting right in front of the tables forget about hearing anything. It’s a good thing Cameraman Bruce brought one of his latest recording tools so we can hear anything at all.
If you don’t like this kind of recording and want to help everyone hear city meetings, call and write your council members to keep pushing for transparency.
