How does an open floor space building cost $25 Million?

Still puzzled how 4-walls in a rectangular shape can cost $25 million, the EXACT same price tag as the Indoor Aquatic Center. I have seen other similar office buildings in Sioux Falls like this for private commercial contractors run between $9-$12 Million. When taxpayers are footing the bill, shouldn’t we be MORE fiscally prudent? I still think we didn’t need the facility. It’s much cheaper to lease space, use more technology and set up work from home programs. Another unnecessary mortgage our Former Mayor Bucktooth & Bowlcut created.

The way this came about was very suspicious. A petition with 6400 signatures was ignored. It happened without an election. It will be less than half occupied. Millions that could have been spent on police and infrastructure. More debt. Huether built unnecessary things to get kickbacks from rigged inflated contracts. Crime pays if you’re mayor.

Kickbacks would be my guess as well.

Notice at 5:22, TJ Nelson gives cameraman Bruce a new nickname, ‘Brewster’. Be careful. Bruce hates nicknames more than Ham.

‘Brewster?’ That sounds more like our former mayor:
