It was Cookie Night at Sioux Falls City Council and most of you missed it. We even had morsels of goodness from many sources of joy to go with it. David Zokaites greeted the new year with chocolate chips for all. Our esteemed leader announced he had two as he left the Sioux Falls City Council meeting on January 3, 2017.

Besides David and his cookies we heard from John Matthius discuss the McKennan Park monster house issue with the courtroom decision. Kermit Staggers graced us with his desire for the Council to bring more transparency to city government. Our own Cameraman Bruce thanked city public works department employees for the Christmas water main repairs plus the patch job on the rusty, oozing Events Center. How about Sierra, she brings so much new information to the public through her inputs. Why don’t law enforcement get there first?

It looks like 2017 is going off to a great start, keep checking back!

3 Thoughts on “Public Input ‘Cookie Night’ – Jan 3, 2017

    John Mathias gave a good presentation. There’s a problem with zoning personnel. They’re more interested in tree trimming than building compliance. The side cam showed Rolfing asleep. Perhaps he’ll review this video to see what he missed.
    Sierra is a firecracker. A vigilante force is not a bad idea given the city refuses to address crime. What’s important is to settle with the police union. Police morale is at an all time low.
    For a change, public comment seemed civil. The cookies helped. I can see why the mayor restricted them. He doesn’t like them hacking city computers. We’re all resigned to the fact the mayor spends public funds for entertainment. I’m hoping the county raises property taxes so he can’t afford his indoor tennis mausoleum on commercial property. It’s a perfect space for indoor cannabis agriculture. What a waste keeping it for bouncing tennis balls.

    Bruce, the EC will get attention when it’s imploded. It’ll be another Zip Feed Mill event.
    There’s another 400 days of Huether. I suggest petitions and Sunshine Law requests to keep he & city legal busy. I doubt there’s anything left to spend. The Indoor Ocean and Admin Museum put the credit card well over the limit. However, keep them busy so they won’t shake change from us by citing everyone for smoking in an open field or texting on a web site.

    The best answer for the city to solve the McKennon Park fiasco is tear down the whole block and build a Walmart.
