Sioux Falls city council plays ‘Chicken’ over joint jurisdiction

Had to chuckle watching the city employees (mostly) and the city council approving the wedding barn. We all know they were scared the Minnehaha County Commission was prepared to pull the joint jurisdiction ‘polite’ agreement, so they chose to pull out on the game of ‘chicken’. Neitzert’s ‘NO’ vote was ‘taking one for the team.’ They know they have no power in rural districts to predict future growth. But they ‘Think’ they do. LOL.

Do they plan to paint it taupe?

I guess “staff” decided that this was never a wedding barn, but, rather is “art”. LOL

Why can’t city and county government be combined? The county balances their budget, operates the jail, provides all social services, and has more road miles. They do it with one tenth the budget. The city hires expensive consultants but doesn’t use the advice. They give away millions in TIF’s to developers.
