UPDATE: Sioux Falls City Council Agenda, Feb 8-9, 2021

Districting Commission Meeting • 6 PM • Monday, Feb 8

The administration does a fine job of man-splaining to the commission what they NEED to do ETHICALLY and LEGALLY and their OPTIONS. Wondering when the city attorney is going to go over these rules with the mayor? Either way, should be a good meeting, and I think the members of the commission is a good bunch.

City Council Informational Meeting • 4 PM • Tuesday, Feb 9

There are several presentations with NO supporting documents except the plan for the Washington Pavilion to take over the Municipal Band. While I don’t take any issue with them taking it over I do find it a bit ironic that the city will still be funding the entity with our taxdollars;

• WPMI to Provide budget annually, subject to appropriation, set at $112,200 in FY2021.

So the Mayor’s Administration’s big plan to force the Municipal Band to become a non-profit really went nowhere. Just like changing the names of several departments in the city with no real changes, this is just another example of the city doing something to make it look like they are doing something without producing any real change. Kind of like the creation of police precincts that are not to be confused with police precincts 🙂

Regular Meeting • 6 PM • Tuesday, Feb 9

This looks to be a very short meeting, there is very little controversial items on the agenda.
