Informational Meeting, 4 PM

Presentations on the following (no PDF doc links to content);

• Water Reclamation Facility Improvements and Expansion Project Update

• Partner Organization Agreements (Sioux Falls Development Foundation, USD Discovery District, Downtown Sioux Falls, Southeast Technical Institute)

• Metro Communications 911 Center – Public Safety Training Center Partnership Discussion

Regular Meeting, 7 PM

Item #6, Approval of Contracts.

• (Sub item #2) It sure didn’t take long, Pavilion takes over the Orpheum and they are quick to spend our money on maintenance. $90K on the boilers.

• (Sub item #8) It seems taxpayers are on the hook for legal counsel on the TIF for Sioux Steel, for $6K. Shouldn’t this be paid for by the recipient of the TIF?

• (Sub item #17) The Convention center is getting over $400K in boiler replacement.

Item #42, Golden Gateway issue is back on the agenda for a 1st Reading.

Item #43, REPEALING THE ORPHEUM THEATER ADVISORY BOARD OF DIRECTORS. Now that the Pavilion has taken over the Orpheum, they will no longer have a citizen advisory board. This is unfortunate.

Item #51, Audit Report, Landfill Licensing. This will be an interesting topic of conversation.

One thought on “Sioux Falls City Council Agenda, Jan 7, 2020”
  1. Seems like regular business going into the new year. I can’t say I agree with merging the Pavilion and Orpheum. However, less stagnant management and more focus could be a way to get downtown entertainment solvent. Spending on the convention center is necessary. It has purpose for smaller venues between bigger things at the Denty.
