Sioux Falls City Council Agenda • April 16, 2019

City Council Informational • 4 PM

• 2020 Municipal Election Update by city clerk Tom Greco

• Congressional City Conference, National League of Cities, Councilor Brekke

• Executive Session (I believe the City Council is getting close to hiring a NEW internal auditor. As I understand it, no big surprises, no outsiders, just more of the same.)

City Council Regular Meeting • 7 PM

Item#2, Invocation, It’s been a long time since a NON-Christian has done the Invocation, this time a Hindu. I hope the X-Tians don’t melt.

Item#41, Ordinance, 2nd Reading, Cement Pad sponsorship at Levitt. Weird. Wondering how long before a sponsorship fence will be put up? It will look like a ballpark soon and all the DT baseball dreamers will have their way.

Items#42-43, 2nd Reading, Ordinance, City buying more Falls Park property. Can’t have enough parking at Falls Park 🙂

Item#44, 2nd Reading, Ordinance, Fiber Optic easement that may screw up the railroad redevelopment, redevelopment. Not sure why all the fiber optic needs to be laid, I thought we were going 5G?

Item#49, 1st Reading, Special Appropriation for flood prone homes. 2nd reading in special meeting next Tuesday. This will be an interesting discussion.

Quote of the week from Mayor Paul TenHaken when talking about cracking down on prostitution in Sioux Falls;

“We need the johns and sellers to see Sioux Falls is not screwing around with this,” TenHaken said.

Prostitution, “Not screwing around with this”. It’s the oldest profession. The local culture suffers. Jobs are inferior salary for families. Men split out of state when there’s divorce because there’s more support than income. Women end up on the street with but county assistance. Judges favor neither. Naturally, there will be part time prostitution. Acceptance, kinda. What’s lacking is a program supporting familial preservation.

In Denmark, the work week is 35 hours with 6 weeks vacation a year. Health care is government subsidized. The divorce rate is minimal. Quality of life and social cultural welfare are the primary focus. Can this structure work in the US?
