Huether Reviews City's Top Accomplishments

Huether Reviews City's Top Accomplishments
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether highlighted a number of accomplishments while also looking to the future in his State of the City address.

Huether spoke before the city council, city employees and members of the public at Carnegie Town Hall Thursday afternoon.

He says the greatest accomplishment in Sioux Falls in 2011 was the number of people who voted in the events center special election in November.  Huether says with voters' approval of the project, the city is moving forward and is on track to break ground this summer. 

Even with 2011 sales tax investments in roads, parks and other improvements, Huether reminded the public that the city ended the year with $4 million in excess.  He says the city and state have invested $109 million in Sioux Falls highways and streets.  And for the first time in 40 years, the water purification plant was able to expand and can now treat 75 million gallons per day.

Huether says consumer spending has rebounded in Sioux Falls and the city is the destination point for many in the region for shopping and entertainment.

KELOLAND'S Kelly Bartnick listened in on the address today; he'll have more highlights coming up on KELOLAND News at 5 and 6.
