Officer Przmus reiterated that citizens should call in any concerns they have – no concern is too minor.

CITY HALL RENOVATION & MANSION

The Finance Officer reported on the meeting in Pierre on the old Governor’s mansion. The City was withdrawing their application since the quote to move the mansion was over $200,000.00, and placing their support behind Pierre for the Joe Foss memorial. Unfortunately the Marine Corp. has no place to put the Mansion and no funding. The Committee extended their decision for another month to let those involved come up with concrete funding or a change in the law that allows them to give it to private sources instead of public sources.
