Sioux Falls City Council delays discussion on parking ramp budget
UPDATE: The Sioux Falls City Council has deferred discussion on a funding issue with the new downtown parking ramp.
The council was set to discuss adding an additional $1.5 million to the project in Tuesday night's meeting, but several councilors voiced concerns they did not have enough time to review information regarding the proposal.
In a 5-3 vote, the council decided to delay discussion on the proposal until next week's meeting.
The parking ramp for Downtown Sioux Falls appears to have hit another snag.
City leaders are asking for another one-point-five million dollars to finish the project.
The initial budget for the construction project appears to have been exhausted.
$20.6 million dollars were allocated for the construction of a seven-story ramp that was supposed to anchor an additional eight stories of commercial building space.
A resolution to amend the funding will be discussed during Tuesday's city council meeting.
