Sioux Falls City Council began the New Year by returning to an issue from last year. The downtown parking ramp project.

With the project approved in December of 2017 council members voted 5-3 against a repeal ordinance Tuesday night.

The parking ramp will sit on East 10th Street and Mall Avenue, and could reach up to 14 stories tall.

According to KDLT TV two city councilors spoke out against the multi-million dollar project. Councilors Theresa Stehly and Pat Starr put forth two measures Tuesday, but those ultimately failed.

One proposed ordinance concerned the usage of bonds to pay for the project.

The other measure would have de-authorized the agreement between the mayor and the construction companies to go ahead with the project.

Are you in agreement with the vote to proceed?

Construction will begin in Spring of 2018.
