Sioux Falls City Council Agenda, Tuesday Sep 18, 2018

City Council Informational, 4 PM

Presentations on August Monthly Financial Report & Village on the River Update.

City Council Land Use Committee, 4:30 PM (after informational meeting)

Citizens Planning Academy. I attended this last year, but only went to first meeting where Planning staff pretty much admitted that Sanford can destroy affordable housing in the central neighborhoods because they have a lot of money and power. I learned all I needed to know about how planning works in Sioux Falls.

COS Erica Beck will give a presentation on street vacations.

Regular City Council Meeting, 7 PM

Item#1, Approval of Contracts.

Another $157K thrown at the Pavilion

Another $304K to upgrade the HVAC at the brand spanking new Events Center

$0 to move the Pavilion Café from City Hall to City Center. I’m sure they are really happy this at City Hall.

Item#27, Property tax increase.

Item#38, Resolution, Adopting the Budget

Item#41, Appointing Jason Reisdorfer. This will likely pass with only one dissenting vote of Stehly. I still take issue with Jason for many reasons. It will be interesting to hear the testimony as to why he deserves this appointment.

Isn’t it ironic

that on the same day the SFSD is asking taxpayers to approve a 300m (190m capital cost, 110m financing cost) bond issue, the City of Sioux Falls is set to pass a 2.1 % property tax increase at tomorrow night’s City Council meeting.

AUTHORIZING AN INCREASE IN PROPERTY TAX REVENUE PURSUANT TO
