Sioux Falls City Council Agenda, April 20, 2021

Information Meeting • 4 PM

I will have to congratulate whoever put the agenda together for the informational. When posted on Friday, all the supporting documents were also there. Maybe someone has been listening to my bitching afterall?

• External Audit Results: Public Parking Enterprise Risk Assessment by Derek Flanagan, Eide Bailly, Partner; Joy Feige, Eide Bailly, Partner; and Kristin Taffe, Eide Bailly, Manager

• March 2021 Financial Results, we are up 6% from last year so far. I have no doubt by the end of the year we will probably be between 7-9% up from 2020.

Regular Meeting • 6 PM

Item #7, Approval of Contracts. Sub Items #12 & #30, Retainers for legal services.

Item #36-38, 51 2nd Readings, City giving Covid money away on unrelated Covid items.

Item #50, 1st Reading, Changes to the Parking Advisory Board. I don’t know everything about this, but this should be an interesting item.

With 15 people in the city attorney office, why must there be retainers for outside legal services?
Covid is federal money meant for the pandemic. Diverting funds into other areas is fraud that’s a federal crime.

I read through the attachments to Item 50 – Parking Advisory Board. Kudos to Kiley and Erickson for getting this done. It makes perfect sense.

Next step should be to go through the by-laws of every public board and make them all consistent. That would help to fix the problems we see with other appointed boards like the Planning Commission.
