The last report to show up on the Pavilion’s site is 2018. If you do a search of city council informational meetings you are unable to find the last time the Pavilion has presented an annual report to the City Council. I guess I’m curious why the 2019 and 2020 annual reports are missing? The Great Plains Zoo will be presenting their annual report to the Parks Board on Wednesday (no supporting docs).

I would also like to see what the financials are for the Levitt from this past season (we may not see those until next spring).

I am often curious how organizations that receive millions in tax dollars to subsidize and provide maintenance to their facilities can just skirt providing financial reports to the citizens or don’t even post them online to at least view. This is what happens when you have a city ran by a cruise control mayor who hates open and transparent government, or maybe he just doesn’t understand it?


In more cruise control government ineptness, the rumor is that the Chief Cultural Officer that the Mayor so desperately needed has resigned and leaving the city this week. If true, I find the timing ironic considering several councilors have asked publicly at meetings when they will get a review about what she has contributed to the city since her position was created. I guess the best way to get out of giving a report is to quit. LOL.

3 Thoughts on “When is the Washington Pavilion going to present the 2019 & 2020 Annual Report to the Sioux Falls City Council?

  1. My boo boo, 2019 is there just not 2020

    2019 will be known in history as the last great year as covid has ruin us all. Those who are not vaccinated will die before their time, while those with boosters will continue to need boosters, while the service economy will continue to collapse due to a lack of people, to service it, who never got their shots. The Dark Ages are us once again. AI might help, but for whom? Who will be left?

    I miss the simpler times, when the Pavilion meant a concern for its cornice and parapets. Will we ever return to those times? For covid has not only prevented ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, but even our ability to fiddle with the top full joys of a much simpler existence, has it not? AND thus, will the roof then eventually fall because of this new reality, thus, making a fiddle or a Fiddler merely a dream?
