Long time public transportation coordinator and Senior Planner let colleagues know in an email he will be leaving;
After 23 ½ years with the City of Sioux Falls, I have decided to take a new job. One of my best experiences at the City of Sioux Falls has been working with the Bicycle Committee and implementation of the Bicycle Plan. The Bicycle Committee has been instrumental in helping me over that time. Please stay engaged with the Bicycle Committee (and now Active Transportation Board too) helping Sioux Falls become a more bicycle-friendly city. My last day at the City is December 1, but I will continue to be here in Sioux Falls. Thanks!
Sam Trebilcock, AICP, Senior Planner // City of Sioux Falls
To tell you the truth, I can’t blame him. With a new vendor moving in for public transportation and the Active Transportation board still working on solutions, retirement probably looked pretty inviting.
While I have disagreed with Sam on a whole host of things, he has been fair and straightforward.
