Sioux Falls City Council Agenda, September 17, 2019

City Council Informational • 4 PM

There will be a presentation on a Pre-Annexation plan. I’m not sure if the property owners requested this or the city is proposing it. As you know, annexation into the city can be very expensive for individual property owners.

Brekke and Stehly will be doing a presentation on their beekeeping ordinance.

City Council Regular Meeting • 7 PM

Item #6, Contracts/Agreements, you can see how much we are paying for private contractors to clean up city. What I find amazing is that the city IS spending money for cleanup, so why not just clean it all up? This is a great economic impact for our local contractors who will circulate their earnings throughout our city’s economy. While the city will be spending our taxdollars, that money will stay local.

Item #7, Change orders, A $121K expenditure to the bunker ramp for utility changes. The hits keep coming folks for this fraudulent mistake by two mayors and several city councilors. Makes me sick to my stomach.

Item #19, Sanford’s new wedding barn is asking for a retail liquor license. Still wondering why a hospital needs a wedding barn?

Item #41, Councilor Man-Child is asking for money for the bike trail while asking volunteers to clean up a natural disaster.

Item #42, Property Tax increase, this will pass unfortunately. But what will be fun to watch is how they will tell us we need to keep reserves then turn around and deny those reserves in cleaning up the city. I wonder if they know how stupid they look?

Item #43, The city is buying property from the Soukup family in the tune of $2.6 million. Not sure what this is for. As you know the family donated land to the city for family park.

Item #47, CIP budget approval.

#52, NEW BUSINESS, Stehly and Starr are proposing the city cleanup all rubbish placed in boulevard from the storm.



#1 Sanford should open a 24 HR pawnshop. on 09.14.19 at 11:58 pm

The Sanford wedding barn is necessary, in order, to advance inbreeding amongst its staff and willing enablers. The hope is that “someday” everyone in town will be only one degree from Sanford so as to make it even easier for Sanford to have their way.

( – and Woodstock states: “‘Have their way?'”….That sounds like a fun marriage to me….”)

No surprise, Dennydom needs a wedding place with liquor. It’s a corporate town and everything should be the company store. So help me L Ron Hubbard, next will be a new faith.
Doesn’t it seem there’s hidden agenda with every council item? I stopped going to council meetings. There’s not enough restrooms when you get sick to your stomach.

#3 Why? on 09.15.19 at 9:51 pm

Tuesday, the Council has one of their most important votes of the year.

Today, I was watching replays of the budget hearings. When a representative for STI got up to present, I thought to myself why does this guy look familiar? Then, I realized it was Steve Williamson, who was fired by the State Theatre Company several years ago.

The SFSD has hired him as Foundation Director at STI.

So, he’s fired by the State Theatre, moves to Chicago, and is now back asking for 150,000 tax dollars for STI!!!

I don’t think he was ‘fired’. I have never heard the details about his departure, part of it was because he was moving. But I do know that the board was NOT happy about his fundraising capabilities, but I can’t say they fired him over it, they may have warned him and he saw the writing on the wall.
