UPDATE: Is Mayor Huether and his Public Works Director sitting on siding report?

UPDATE: I have been told by a city official that the report won’t show up until next week.

I reached out to Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, the company in charge of doing the events center siding report. I asked them if the study was complete and if so if the city received it yet. I also asked for a copy of the report. I have not gotten a response to any of my questions.

My assumption is that study would be complete by now. Since it was due on December 29, I think it is safe to say that they would not have been reviewing the siding the week before Christmas and finalizing a written report that last week of the year. This of course is just an assumption.

I do know that at least one city councilor requested to see the report at the same time as public works and mayor’s office, but never really got a confirmation on that.

I’m speculating the city (mayor’s office) is combing through it secretely and privately to maximize damage control if something in the report turns out to be bad.

We can truly call 2017 in Sioux Falls, ‘The Year of Extreme Secrecy’.

The passage of the past several days has proven that this Mayor has been sitting on a lot more than a report on siding.
