Remember when Greg threw out a ‘hypothetical’ number;

Imagine my surprise (as well as the mayor’s) when councilor Jamison threw the $24 Million number out there last night at the city council meeting (FF to the construction manager at risk discussion towards the end). It was pretty obvious from the Mayor’s reaction (he literally flipped out on councilor Jamison for putting it out there) that Greg may not be to far off the mark, or someone within the city or private development gave him the numbers.

Well the hammer dropped on the actual cost of the building today at the informational, without a lot of explanation as to why we need it (and underground parking).

While I have still been seething about the ignorant Republicans and cowardice Democrats for voting for a sales tax increase (then turning around and voting for another possible one on municipalities) in the state legislature, I am still baffled why this building is needed. Well let the SF Twitter feed explain;


Apparently the City’s Fleet Vehicles drive themselves?

8 Thoughts on “Councilor Jamison was only $2.1 million off the mark when it comes to the new city admin building

    Maybe most of the city employees could ride the bus.
    Sounds like another damn debt with no plan again for pay back. Last night mmm sure seemed to be concerned about the $650k loss the arena is doing. How does he miss the mark about informing taxpayers as to whose rear the $9,000,000 debt payment will come from. Add in the damn pool and $11,000,000 for the redirected funds that were misused on the pool for Levy bond. Are we as citizens that stupid to continue letting him go crazy. Come on city council. Stuff him
    in a corner.

  2. They should wait to vote on the new admin building until the new council is elected. We are only a few weeks away from an election that will replace 1/2 of the council.

    In Wall Street Journal today, SD & UT spiriting an Internet sales tax. 11 states collaboration. If it happens, shouldn’t need a sales tax increase.

    It’s time to legalize medical pot. States that have, paid off debt and have surplus from sin taxes. Pot is no more dangerous than alcohol. Just don’t smoke on Avera property. Eat brownies from the cafeteria.

  4. I can’t afford nice or new or modern things, so why should anyone else have access to them. Everybody must live as much a crap life as possible, otherwise, no spiritual rewards for them.

  5. Well, the way the streets are becoming “hidden sink holes” they have proven that they can’t make a road last threw a winter so, let’s do something we can, and build another building we don’t need, can’t afford and can’t get to.

    The new Fish Bowl is reserved for the rich kid swim team. Potholes are outdoor pools for the rest of us.

    I noticed that the Argus Business Journal on Feb 24th included a list of the top 20 building projects of 2015. Someone at the city has now lowered the price of that hideously huge monstrosity of a building that will house a swimming pool for the rich kids. Last year the project was listed as costing closer to $24 million and now it is listed as costing ONLY $20 million. Must be more number juggling by Turbak at the request of MMM.
