Sioux Falls City Council Agenda, Oct 29, 2019

The city council again this week is slacking, but hey, they deserve it, they (some of them) work hard.

Informational Meeting • 4 PM

Presentations on September financials, Supplemental Appropriations for storm cleanup and Professional services agreements for Public Safety Facility.

• As you can see below, tax collection is doing well. It was interesting to see entertainment tax revenue was down from last year September but lodging tax was up. I find it strange that the entertainment tax was down. I have been noticing on the weekends that there isn’t a big crowd hanging out downtown lately, it is kind of eery.

• Not sure why storm cleanup appropriations were tied into snow removal. Can’t wait to hear explanation.

• While we are hiring professional services for the public safety facility, we still haven’t got a clear pricetag. Not sure why.

Is there a city council? Were they held ransom and nobody paid? I’m thinking it doesn’t take decisions to burn city budget.

I need a job like city council. 25k a year for nothing and a fast food job is almost a living.

“Not sure why storm cleanup appropriations were tied into snow removal. Can’t wait to hear explanation.”

( – and Woodstock adds: “Hey, a snow job is a snow job.”)

“Now offering tornado recovery bus tours…” maybe the Jesus plows are going to miraculously clean-up up the mess?
