Big Decisions To Make In SF Come April



Bookmark and Share

Mayor Mike Huether or City Councilman Greg Jamison? This is just one of many decisions Sioux Falls residents will have to make April 8, at the next municipal election.

Sioux Falls City Clerk Lorie Hogstad said, "Normally, a mayoral elections is big. It brings out a lot of people, I mean, it's a big decision to make."

But that's not the only decision. Residents will vote on two initiatives or items brought forth by the citizens. The first is whether to build an indoor aquatic facility at Spellerberg Park on 26th Street and Western Avenue. The second is whether to purchase enough snow gates to plow the entire city.
    
Hogstad said, "That would mandate the use of snow gates for cleaning or removing snow from public streets."

Residents will also be voting on two referendums, ordinances that were adopted by the city council and are being referred back to the public.
    
"The last time we had a referendum was about 20 years ago and that was for the Washington Pavilion and so that just tells you how long it's been," said Hogstad.

The city council voted to rezone the land on 85th Street and Minnesota Avenue from agricultural use to commercial, to make way for a new Walmart. But the 'Save Our Neighborhood' group collected enough petitions to bring the issue to a vote. The second referendum is whether to approve the 'Shape Places' ordinance, an update to the current zoning ordinance that hasn't been changed in 30 years.

Hogstad said, "'Shape Places' is the zoning ordinance for the entire city of Sioux Falls, not just a specific area.

A record number of issues that could bring a record number of voters to the polls, issues that you may need your reading glasses for.

"Then we need to fit this all on one ballot, all on one ballot," Hogstad said.

Along with the top spot in the city, residents will vote on four other seats on the city council. Two of those are at-large seats, the central district and the southeast district.

The city clerk says there will likely be a few amendments to the the city charter on the ballot as well.
