SF Mayor Talks Neighborhoods With Residents

SF Mayor Talks Neighborhoods With Residents
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Running off last year's success, Sioux Falls city leaders hoped to build off that momentum as they tackled a variety of issues Saturday at the second annual Mayor's Neighborhood Summit.

When Scott Ehrisman heard there was going to be another neighborhood summit this year, he decided to join in on the conversation.

"Oh, I follow the city politics pretty close, So, I just want to hear or see if anything new is going on," Ehrisman said.

Ehrisman along with nearly 150 other Sioux Falls residents are here to talk the good, the bad and the ugly in their neighborhoods.

And with topics ranging from rental properties to snow gates to bed bugs, the Mayor Mike Huether says anything's up for discussion on Saturday.

"That's what I really enjoy about this day is that you never know what questions are going to be asked. But, it's in the spirit of making our community better," Huether said.

Snow gates and tax increment financing brought Ehrisman here to the meeting. He's hopes snow gates will soon plow their way through the entire city.

"I would like to see snow gates be put on the ballot in the spring with the school board election and that to get passed. It'd be truly a public service to the city," Ehrisman said.

And regardless of whether these residents are here to ask questions or to sit and listen, Kay Gollesch says it's a discussion everyone should be apart of.

"I think it keeps people aware of where we need to make improvement on the community," Kay Gollesch said.

"To me, if we work together, there's absolutely nothing we can't accomplish as a town," Huether said.

The mayor says his overall goal for the summit is to get people energized about their neighborhoods.
