Sioux Falls City Council Agenda, Tuesday, September 12, 2017

At the informational meeting they have a couple of interesting topics. I have NO idea what they will cover since supporting documents are still in the top secret city hall vault.

Top Ten Projects & Refinancing the Lewis & Clark Bonds

I don’t even have an educated guess what the projects thing is about, but on the Lewis & Clark refinance, I am assuming we are getting a better interest rate on the $70 million dollar bond we took out to build a pipeline we get about 10% of our water from. I guess we will have to wait and see.

During the City Council Meeting, we have a host of big items.

Item#1, Approval of Contracts. Apparently we need to hire a consultant to tell us what to do with the Arena and Orpheum Theatre. Here is some free advice, BOOK EVENTS!

Item#2, Change Orders. I guess the Convention Center remodel isn’t going so smoothly, they need another $180K.

Item#5, 2nd Reading, Election changes. This is the item that Rolfing is going to offer the ridiculous amendment to change council races to a 51% threshold. I hope this fails, but with the way the council has been voting lately, who knows. Please come and testify against the insanity.

Item#7, 1st Reading. I believe this is the Lewis & Clark refinance.

Item#9, 1st Reading. Lloyd Companies unneeded TIF. You can also testify against this during the public input.

Item#12, Resolution for tax assessments for the DT BID tax.

I also guess the biking community will be testifying against the Right Turn Pedestrian signage during public input.

More expenses, private give away, & civil rights infringement. When will there be something that’s public benefit?
