Sioux Falls City Council votes to allow Sanford to ‘park’ a liquor license at their foundation house

So the dirty little secret comes out. Sanford Health has NO intention to use the liquor license at the foundation house, just to ‘park’ it there until they open another bar/restaurant at the sports complex.

So with so many people wanting a liquor license in town, to actually use, and generate tax revenue, the city council has allowed Sanford to actually SIT on a license, an organization that should be using all of their revenue to actually help the sick and dying instead buying up liquor licenses.

If you don’t think our city government hasn’t been bought and paid for by Sanford, you are one naive little turkey.

I was actually embarrassed that not one single councilor voted against it. I guess it is OK for a healthcare organization to horde liquor licenses but a family business owner can’t sell a Bud Light at a movie.

Shake my F’cking head.

So, the Western mall Theatre is denied a license but a nonexistent bar/restaurant gets one? Wonder who had the money/clout in that situation?

I didn’t know drinking was good for ya?

It’s Sanford. We’re owned.

That’s frustrating. Given how long the wait list is, companies shouldn’t be able to hoard licenses if they aren’t in use. Either open a restaurant now, or forfeit rights to the license.

I think the bar is going to have a English pub motif. They’re going to call it “A Stitch in Time.”

A little off topic but, it ties into… you can’t trust the water so we all must get a liquor license!

I’m just wondering if anyone caught this documentary called upstream on independent lense on PBS.

Absolutely sums up what they call the Wetico virus. Folks, nobody is watching out for you.

Good day and good luck.

When will the naming rights for the city be up for sale?

#9 "Very Stable Genius" on 04.18.18 at 3:10 pm

Naming rights for our city are of no marketable value, because everyone else will always know us as Sanford Falls.

What was the rationale for approving it from councilors Starr and Stehly?
