SF City Council Talks $1.8 Mill For Spending



Bookmark and Share

The Sioux Falls city council has nearly $1.8 Million to spend, its extra money gained last year that's just sitting in the city's capital fund.

 

Following the recent storm, some people thought the available dollars could go towards storm cleanup but that's not the case.

 

Councilors said the city is financially stable enough to cover operating costs, which the damage left over from the storm falls under.

 

Thursday night at a city council working session, members spoke about top priorities in the city seeking financial support.

 

Hot items on the list contain repaving city roads, law enforcement center generator upgrades and the most popular, disability accessibility upgrades, following a study done in the city.

 

"When they started talking about our need for ADA accessibility at the bus stops  and at the curbs, we we're really doing the non-verbal at council, we we're like this is something we have to do," said Councilwoman Michelle Erpenbach.

 

The money will be distributed to projects this year,  if there are any dollars left over, they will rolled over into the 20-14 budget or put in a reserve.

 

The council also spoke a lot about investing money into the state theater, which could serve as a central location for a movie theater downtown.

Most likely, the city will distribute the money to projects on Tuesday, April 23rd.
